Toronto Islands in Canada Go Back
 
The Toronto Islands, Toronto is a favorite tourist destination in Canada. The network of islands, collectively referred to as The Island was originally a peninsula which offered the area a naturally-protected harbor. However, later the peninsula was broken up into 6 islands during a raging storm in the year 1858 and was cut off from the mainland by a channel which was subsequently deepened artificially. Toronto Islands, Toronto became a summer retreat for the city's wealthier citizens, with dozens of permanent cottages and a large tenting ground by the 1920s.

On weekends, an amusement park and baseball stadium attract thousands of visitors from the mainland to this Toronto Islands in Toronto. The Toronto Islands turns out to be prefect gateway for the people wanting to relax at the end of a tiring journey. There is a picturesque summer amusement park, paddle boats and bikes for rent, in-line skating paths and plenty of grass and beach area for nice picnics with families and friends.
