A chain of small Lake Ontario islands just offshore from the
city, the Toronto Islands were created from a series of continually
moving sandbars connected to the mainland by a frail peninsula,
which finally disintegrated after a major storm in 1858. Only a
short ferry ride from the mainland, the Toronto Islands provide a
peaceful green refuge from the hubbub of the city and afford
attractive panoramic views of downtown Toronto. Hire a bike or
relax on the beach, take the kids for a day at Centreville
Amusement Park or have a languid picnic in one of the many
designated leafy areas.
