Going to Centre Island is always fun for my family and I. It doesn't matter if you go every year or haven't been for years because going to the Island is a wonderful escape from the daily routine, and a fun way to enjoy summer. There are lots to do for the whole family. Our favourite activity is going to Centreville and enjoying the rides. This year we even got to meet pirates.
Centreville Amusement Park is located on the Toronto Islands, is the ultimate summer destination for families with young children. With over 30 rides and attractions this theme park offers up a full day of family fun. Getting to Centreville is almost as exciting as the park itself, we love the scenic ride on the Centre Island ferry.
This 14-acre theme park is designed to look like a turn-of-the-century Ontario village. You'll love the antique carousel with its fanciful animals. Kids can get plenty of driving experience zooming around in the antique cars, touring cars or fire engines. Spin yourself silly in the self-propelled Beasley Bear Ride and Twirling Tea Cups; or enjoy picturesque views from atop the windmill-style Ferris Wheel.
Those who can handle a few more thrills can ride the brand new Toronto Island Mine Coaster, or may want to tackle the rough seas aboard the Rockin' Ferry Ride, spin around in the Scrambler, take a plunge in the Log Flume Ride or bounce around in Bumper Boats and Bumper Cars.
Established in 1959, Far Enough Farm is a longstanding Centre Island staple that is sure to please children and adults alike. This wonderful hobby farm is home to over 40 different species of birds and farmyard animals. Guests are welcome to stroll around Far Enough Farm while getting up close and personal with our furry and feathered friends.
Last time we went we visited Franklin's garden, which is inspired by Franklin Turtle of the beloved book series by Paulette Bourgeois. The Franklin Children’s Garden offers children and their families the opportunity to get close to local flora and fauna alongside Franklin and his friends. Circle the path to the top of the Unilever Snail Trail, learn what it takes to keep plants growing strong at the Kids Can Press Little Sprouts Garden, observe natural wildlife at the Turtle pond, stop in for a story at TD Story Book Place, or search for the story book characters throughout the garden.
