Toronto is made up of different neighbourhoods, each great in their own right. Often it doesn’t take much guessing to figure out why! Take the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood for example. It’s great because of, well, the St. Lawrence Market! Trinity Bellwoods’ piece de resistance is obviously Trinity Bellwoods Park itself! What makes Toronto’s waterfront so special? The waterfront, of course! There are so many great aspects of living on the waterfront year round that make it an amazing place to be. Here are 5 reasons to love living on the water! Continue reading

The waterfront is made up of incredible landscapes, and most significantly, amazing public spaces. Stretching east to west, the development of diverse outdoor spaces for the public to visit has been a focus of Waterfront Toronto. One such example is the Corktown Common, a popular area with parks, trails, and a splash pad. While these outdoor features are what make the Corktown Common so great, the flood protection landform is the most essential feature of the area. Not sure what a flood protection landform is? Let us explain. Continue reading

If you’re a bookworm, then you know, there’s no better feeling than curling up with a good book. Whether it’s a classic, a favourite that you keep picking up, or a new novel that’s set the literary world abuzz, reading brings about a specific type of bliss. While enjoying a good is often a solitary activity, when you instead open yourself up to the literary community the celebration of the written word reaches new heights. Toronto is lucky enough to have a one day spectacular event that does just this – The Word on the Street Festival. Continue reading
Just because September has arrived doesn’t mean you have to stop the summer activities. Torontonians tend to be blessed with beautiful fall weather, which serves those of us still trying to check things off our summer bucket list. One such activity that hopefully made it onto your summer agenda is a visit to Toronto Island. With its many trails, beaches, and summer events the island is an ideal spot to venture to. Not only is it a unique place in the city to escape to, but it has a vast history. We decided to do a little research and find out how the Island we know and love today came to be. Continue reading
As we zoom through the latter half of August, the urge to fit as much summer into a short amount of time becomes all the more pressing. We look over our bucket lists at the remaining activities and make every effort to pencil them in the coming weeks. The good news is that once August ends, the weather will still be gorgeous (if not more so), and the summer activities will still be available to you! One such ‘must-do’ activity that continues into September is visiting the Toronto Music Garden. Continue reading
The Toronto Waterfront covers quite a bit of space on a Google map. Technically it’s a 46 km area running between Etobicoke Creek in the west and the Rouge River in the east.

The area is bustling with Torontonians and visitors alike, as well as the spot of a major revitalization. Here’s our guide to how to have your own perfect day on the Toronto Waterfront.

We love the hustle and bustle of the city, but sometimes it’s nice to get away from it all – even if it’s just for a day! Luckily, here in Toronto, we have an oasis of our own that is just a short ferry ride, paddle, or swim (but we don’t recommend that last option) away. The Toronto Islands are a staple in the city for day trips with family and friends to enjoy the heat of the summer. It’s the perfect place to spend the full day outdoors and really get away from it all back in the downtown core. Continue reading
