Hello, I'm wondering if there's a confirmed date for the reopening of the island to the general public? Last I heard, the island would be closed until July 31, is that still true, and does that mean it will be open on August 1? When will the decision be made? Thank you!


Are the islands open today?


well i'm glad I found this website; would have been disappointed; least theres the Aquarium to visit..


Can you get to Hanlans Point yet? I know everyone is saying the island is closed but I can see water taxis and the tiki taxi still taking people over so I'm wondering if Hanlan's is back to "normal"...


Is Hanlan's Point closed or open this weekend?


The island is still closed to non-residents. Sorry everyone wherever you come from, this is not a good year so far for the island for tourists and for locals. It's also very tough on businesses who rely on summer business :-( July 31 is the current scheduled open time but this can change pending the City's evaluation.


Hello we\'d like to visit the Ward\'s Island today. We come from France, we\'ll be staying for a couple of days. I read the flooding casing a total closure of the park until July 31. Did I get this right? Thanks for your reply.


Is Toronto island open for visitors? We are coming from Niagara Falls and would be very disappointed if the islands were closed due to flooding :( if they islands are open what kind of activities are there for adults? Is there a beach? Thank you


The Island will remain closed until July 31 :(


Hello is wards island open? It says June 30 here on the website so just wondering if it is open now?


Hi, Just want to check on the status of the islands, if they are open or closed July 8-12. Thanks!


It is now July 4. Is Toronto Island Park open for visitors?


When is the amusement park opening?


Any update on when the island will be re-opened after the flooding? I have never been and was wanting to go to hanlan point beach. Thanks


Is Toronto Center Island is open now?


Visiting towards the end of July, how are the water levels doing? Really sorry to hear you had this problem, must be awful for the businesses!!


Are the Ferries going to be running to Centre Island this weekend? Canada Day Weekend.


Is there any update on whether the island will be open to the public this weekend? We would want to cycle round and see the views of the city, don't really mind if the theme park and beaches aren't accessible.


Hello, I wonder if Toronto Island will be open for next Monday's holiday, July 03. I would like to visit the island on this day. Thank you!


hello there just wondering is toronto island open after the flooding? thanks


I am writing a story that includes the Toronto Islands. I would like to know if it is physically possible to walk from Channel Ave on Ward Island to Billy Bishop Airport. When I do a mapquest it makes me take the ferry back to the mainland first. My story is after an apocalypse so the airport won't be one anymore, and any rules, other that those of nature won't apply. Also, if this is possible, how long do you think it may take? An approximation would be awesome!!!


How come the islands are not yet available for public ? What is the big deal ? A little flood ? Unbelievable...


My heart goes out to all of the residents. I know you will bounce back and be better and stronger than before.


The island is closed until July 31 - at least.


Hello, We are a group of friends planning to go for a trip to Toronto islands on Sunday June 25. i wounder what type of buses you have and how much it will cost us. we will be around 40 to 50 passengers mixed between adults and children. i need you to provide me with a quotation on all the buses options and prices ASAP. Regards


I've been watching Toronto Island from the CN Tower Cam. As I looked at the Hanlan dock and the road just beyond it, I ask myself if I'm looking at asphalt or water covering the asphalt. Looking forward to drying times. Good luck.


Due to flooding, the Toronto Island Park is closed until further notice. According to City of Toronto officials the park will likely remain closed until at least June 30, possily beyond.


Are the islands still flooded?


Hi, I'm thinking about running the Island Girl half marathon in September. What are the chances that the island will be dry and ready for visitors by that time?


When is Toronto Island offcially open?


The Island is flooded right now ! Only service to Ward's Island, much of the Island is not accessible due to high water. Many of the roads are deep in water, deeper than most high topped rubber boots.


We've recently added a few new pages and updated existing content to get ready for the summer!


Yes, there will be a garden tour this year. For more info check the Tours page of this website.


Planning an event for the island, just wondering if there was any paid or public wifi on the island?


Are you having a garden tour of the resident\'s houses this year and if so, when? I went once and loved it. Would like to go again


Guided tours of the Toronto Island Community by longtime residents will begin June 1, 2017. For details,check out our Facebook page Walk Ward's Island or email us at walkwardsisland@gmail.com

Bike rental is not yet open


Hi, Can bikes be rented during the month of April or is the bike area only open in summer? Thanks!


Hi there, I apologize in advance for the obscurity of this question, but my husband and I are in the process of planning an oceans-themed educational attraction for kids and are on the lookout for 6-10 well-worn lifejackets to use as decor, similar to the ones used on the Toronto Island ferries. I'm wondering if there's any chance that you are getting rid of any and we may be able to take them off your hands? Thank you for any insight you can provide, it's truly appreciated. All the best, -Katie


Can I bring my motorcycle to the Island for the day? How do I go about doing this?


How much does it cost to rent a bike?
