No doubt a very busy place on a sunny day, and even more during the summer. Some big boats, and a bunch of others of all sizes. Nice (but short) boardwalk. Picnic tables. Lots of places to eat. Recreational (cycling, walking) path goes right by.

The Harbourfront has nice restaurants, stores, walking path and seating areas. Take any of water boats/cruises to take a water tour of the islands. The views of Toronto from the boat are wonderful.

We hung out before the Blue Jay game and it was nice to walk around and had a nice time. It was a bit littered with garbage I must say....

This is a calm, relaxing and nice location, very close to Ontario lake and a few steps from the centre.

Downtown West
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

There is no fee, but parking in the area is terrible. Expect to pay for parking.
