My husband and I took a narrated boat tour that went along the islands. Was very intrigued to see. We did not know there were small islands off the city. Very nice area to visit. During the summer the island beach is open for visitors.

Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner
Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the
outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is
celebrated by a number of monuments and museums,
giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier
destination for modern art, people here stroll through
the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy
the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
