I’m surrounded by colorful trees, and ahead of me is the skyline of Toronto. Its so much more quiet out here. A nice place for a getaway from the city.
I got to borrow a bicycle from a friend and took the ferry from Jack Layton Ferry Terminal to Ward’s Island. I was cycling around on the island in around 2 hours. From one end to another and back. It was around 6 km each way, so it was nice to have a bike.
The island had nice roads and surroundings. Some people are living here, but its still a quiet place. I bet this is like the perfect getaway from the city in the summertime. Beach, restaurants and parks. They even have a clothing optional beach! It was a little bit to cold for me to enjoy the beach for this time, but Toronto Island was still a nice place to see in the fall.
How to get to Toronto Island?
The ferry to the island is going from Jack Layton Ferry Terminal. You can only take a ferry to Ward’s Island in the wintertime, but you have 2 more opportunities in the spring, summer and fall. Check the ferry schedule at the time of the year when you are going.
