Toronto Islands

Toronto Islands are found in Lake Ontario and cover a surface area of 568 acres. The islands were originally a peninsula which was 5.6 miles long, however, it was divided as a result of natural storms.

The largest island of the archipelago is Centre Island which has a small community and an airport. There is also a sailing club, attraction park and Centerville Amusement Park on this island. Hanlan’s point and Ward’s Island are two other islands which are linked to Centre Island by bridges.

The most popular islands, which have parks and some beaches, are Olympic Island, Foresty Island, Snake Island and Centre Island. All of the islands have picnic areas, bicycle and pedestrian paths and are connected to the rest of the city by ferry-making them the perfect place to having a relaxing family day out while visiting the city.
