This area is very open, relaxing yet vibrant. There were families out walking, joggers, cyclists, skateboarding and roller blading .It felt safe. As a wheelchair user it was easy to get about.

Harbourfront is great from the perspective that it sits on the water, so the views, especially on a summer day, are amazing. However, we sort of feel like it was never really developed as well as some waterfronts in other cities. The restaurants are average...More

Walked this area top to bottom. Sailed the Kajama - so much fun! (Food is not inexpensive so if you're on a budget - eat before so you are only paying to snack).

Go online and check out their programming, most of which is free. There is something for everyone regardless of your age and culture. It's a fun way to spend a leisurely day.

We walked around the park at night and during the day! It's a really cute park. We really enjoyed the ice rink, and they seemed etc have a lot off activities day and night at the rink.

Toronto Harbourfront is always changing, with new attractions and innovative things to do. There are art displays, entertaining activities for children, and lots of walks available along the waterfront. A wonderful place to spend a weekend afternoon in summer. This year (2017) was particularly attractive,...More

We wandered around here after our visit to the ROM. The weather was very nice! We saw lots of fun things. Especially the large statue of the cat. Beware the parking in this area is very pricey!

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.
