You need to take ferry to Central island. The island has some booths for kids to play and have the cable car too. There also has a big field for picnic. I think most of the kids will like Central island in Toronto.

Step off the ferry and disappear along one of the many paths to beaches, forests or the amusement park with a farm. Rent a bike and explore the paths, or just stroll and enjoy the views south across the lake or north to the city....More
