Toronto Island

Continuing what has become my series of "Knowing Toronto" we went to Toronto Island! :)

To go to Toronto Island we need to take the ferry in the ferry docks near Union Station. You can walk from Union Station or take the streetcar to Exhibition and go down at the first stop.
There you'll have to pay $6.5 per adult to go to the Central Island (round trip, cash) and wait along all these people to get on the ferry :D

The island is beautiful, there are bridges everywhere of all kind! Like this one, which was my favourite!

You can also rent a bike, tandem (2 in a bike), quadricycle for 2 and a kid, or quadricycle for 4 adults and 2 kids. Or you can walk all the way, which is a LOT xD

At Toronto Island you can also find CentreVille, which is an amusement park for kids with rides and a little farm.

Or you can go to the beach and have fun in the water :D

So, there is a lot to do at the park and that was just half of it! Since we didn't have time to see everything in the island xD But we still have time to go back this year or some other year to see the other half ;)

I love Toronto island, I went last summer.

It's good to have a close getway from the city for the summer! It's a beautiful place.

I've gone a couple times, and I think it's great. Especially the little neighbourhoods.
