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?

Hi, I'm emailing from WWF-Canada about whether we can shoot a short video in front of the Christmas tree maze on Toronto Island. Is there a cost or permit required?

Hello, After getting off the ferry at Wards island and walking west I passed a small bridge and a historic sign about the Toronto Yacht Club. Beside the bridge was one of those grey boxes that contains lots of wires. It was cracked open and the wires were pouring out in a pile. If any of them are live its a major safety risk! I was geocaching at the time and nearly stepped on them while I was looking. Not sure how to contact the right people to go and fix it!

Hi - does anyone have accommodation to rent on the island from Nov 5-16? thankyou (please reply via my facebook page - Nicolas Lenskyj

Hi there! I am a member of the Public Health Students' Association at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health (University of Toronto). We are hosting a retreat at Artscape Gibralter Point for students, faculty, and alumni. One of our guests has a sprained ankle, and as Artscape is a 25 minute walk from the ferry terminal, we were wondering if there are any accessibility options to get to Artscape. If you wouldn't mind letting me know as soon as possible, I would really appreciate it! Thank you so much, Kathleen

is there a recycling/waste facility on the island? How is the recycling handled?

Is the beach open on labour day or will the beach be closed?

With the humidex reaching 41°C today, I'm wondering if it would be okay to bring a screen tent to Ward's Island Beach, to provide a little shade and relief from the sun.

Can we bring alcoholic beverage or any other brevage / food at the beach?

Kayak rentals .., I know they are on the island... But WHERE? The only mentioning of rentals on the website is regarding bikes, however I have seen SUP rentals in various locations. Anyone have any info for me? Location for rentals, price etc?

Correction -Disc golf course is not located on ward's island rather it is spread between Snake island and Centre island. Let it be known that back in the 60's the City razed many beautiful homes along the boardwalk and all they could replace them with was a disc golf course - A real Toronto trajedy!!

My husband and I are sooooo excited about visiting Wards island again! The view of the sun sparkling on the waters brought tears to my eyes! Hopefully this time we'll see the other islands!! Oh wow, did I mention that I was excited? Lol

Went to visit Toronto Island today. We recommend buying your ticket online to save time by going to Booth 9. The ferry is only a 10 minute ride. When you arrive, take a picture of the times so you can time your departure without waiting. We enjoyed the Carousel Café - good serving size, reasonable price, and licensed café. Bring a beach towel, sunscreen and lots of water. Have fun!

So I left Toronto for the island realized I had my bfs walle. Called to ask if i could return without paying so he could buy his ticket the man on the phone was rude and hung up on me.
