Toronto Neighbourhood Guide



Recreation in Harbourfront

Harbourfront has more recreational opportunities than any other Toronto neighbourhood.

The vast Harbourfront Centre lines an expansive area of our waterfront, offering visitors a multitude of ways to spend a memorable day by the Lake. In the winter the Natrel Rink is home to learn to skate lessons, recreational skate and even DJ Skate night parties.  The March and Summer camp offers children 45 diverse mini camps with everything from cooking, circus and sports, to sailing, kayaking and digital photography. Summer in the city could be the best choice yet, with a chance for your children to enjoy these reasonable, educational and fun-filled programs.

Sail and motor boat rentals and short or long term Sailing Club memberships, are available at a surprisingly affordable rate. In addition the Harbourfront Centre is home to many theatrical events, with artists in residence and unique art exhibits all open to the public. 

The Air Canada Centre, Skydome, C.N. Tower, and the Harbourfront Antique Market are all located within this neighbourhood. The Canadian National Exhibition, the Marine Museum, and Old Fort York are all just minutes from Harbourfront, while the Toronto Islands are ten minutes away by ferry boat.

The social, cultural, and recreational hub of the neighbourhood is the Harbourfront Centre, located at the York Quay at 235 Queens Quay West. This popular lakeside venue hosts close to 4,000 events per year, ranging from craft workshops and sailing lessons to jazz festivals and food fairs.
