Event description

Description

Toronto Island Walking Tours, formerly Walk Ward's Island, is a 90-minute walking tour through the vibrant community on Toronto Island, one of Toronto's greatest tourist attractions.

This year-round cottage-like community of 700 people is car free and store-free, yet only a 10 minute ferry boat ride from downtown Toronto.

Join Susan and Linda, two long-time Island residents, to see homes and gardens and the beautiful public square created by community members. Learn about the Island's rich 150-year history and today's thriving community of writers, artists and mixed-income families living in the 563-acre Toronto Island Park.

Scheduled tours are offered every Wednesday and Sunday to the end of September.

Individuals and groups of 10 or less can buy tickets directly on this website. Cost per person is $25.

Customized tours for groups of 10 to 25 are offered throughout the week. Please get in touch at info@torontoislandwalkingtours.com to discuss group rates, your group's interests and to set a date.

All walking tours start at the white gazebo at the Ward's Island ferry dock. Linda and Susan will be there to meet you!

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The walking tour is best suited for people aged 18 and older, but we have had younger folks over 12 years who've enjoyed it.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Take the ferry to Ward's Island from the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal at the foot of Bay Street in downtown Toronto. The terminal is easy to get to on public transit. Give yourself time to purchase ferry tickets at the docks or go online to https://secure.toronto.ca/FerryTicketOnline/tickets/index.jsp

There are a few nearby parking lots. When planning your trip to the Island, add about fifteen minutes for the walk from your parking to the ferry terminal.

If you're a cyclist, ride to the terminal and take your bike on the ferry. Lock it up on the Island before the tour begins at the Ward's Island ferry dock.

Give yourself plenty of time to get to the ferry docks, and look at the ferry boat schedule to Ward's Island in advance so you can time your visit. Go to toronto.ca and search Toronto Island ferry schedule.

What can I bring into the event?

We suggest you wear comfortable walking shoes or sandals, bring a hat, sunscreen and water.
