There is so much to do on Centre Island. It is worth allotting a lot of time for a trip there. The only way to get to the Island is by ferry. The ferry goes to all three Islands. There are beautiful views of the harbor and the CN Tower from the ferry. There are actually three Islands connected: Centre Island, Hanlan’s Island, and Ward’s Island. The main Island is Centre Island with activities for all ages. There are wide open fields and many picnic tables scattered throughout.
The Island has many enjoyable activities including the Centreville Amusement Park geared mostly toward younger children, and a petting zoo on premises as well. There is a boat rental and bike rental. Thequadricycle is a popular and exciting way to get around and enjoy the scenery.
Near the bike rental there are magnificently landscaped gardens with fountains. The beach just behind the rental booth is beautiful and there is a pier to walk on. Children love the splash pad and playground. The evergreen maze is both fun and challenging.
