Polson pier

Toronto Islands

Toronto Islands

Toronto islands are another popular spot with beautiful view of downtown Toronto and lots of other attractions. You can get there by regular ferry or water taxi. Ferry boats go to three different Islands: Centre, Hanlan's and Ward's Island. The islands are all connected, so you can walk from one to another. Each one has different views.

Parking around Island Dock terminal quite expensive, so also consider public transit to reach there,

Chester Hill Lookout

Chester Hill Lookout

Chester Hill lookout, located in residential area, off Broadview, north of the Danforth and within ten-minute walk north from Broadview  Station.. It is one of the hidden gems, with a viewpoint of the Toronto downtown skyline and Don Valley landscape. 

Sunset and nighttime are  the best hours to visit the Lookout.

Riverdale Park

Riverdale Park

Large park spanning the Lower Don River in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, between Cabbagetown to the west and Broadview Avenue in Riverdale to the east. You can get there taking public transit and walking 5 minutes from Broadview station south.

Nice vantage from top of the hill, point especially during sunset.

Trillium Park

Popular city green space near waterfront with many landmarks.  Inspired by the Ontario landscape itself, the park was designed in consultation with people from across Ontario, including First Nation. Here you can find many beautiful views on a lake and downtown core. Close to water there is a fire pit, making good spot to relax and enjoy your time at summer nights.

Connected to Toronto's history, Ireland park devoted to Irish immigrants and  creates a historic and artistic link between the Toronto and Dublin waterfronts, showing arriving Irish Famine migrants. Park offering close view to Toronto downtown with nice reflection of city on a water. Best time are sunset and blue hours.

Toronto Boat Cruises

Toronto Boat Cruises

Toronto from the water. Another option to take amazing pictures of Toronto skyline is boat cruises. Apart of just taking pictures its a nice option to spend your time and enjoy views. Personally I like tall ship tours, such as Tall Ship Kajama, 3-masted traditional schooner for 2-hour daytime & sunset cruises, running from May to September. 

After taking pictures sit back and relax at fully licensed bar on board.

Underpass Park

Underpass Park, Toronto

Another good vantage point to take different angle on downtown Toronto is road bridge above Underpass park. You can get there from ramp leading from underpass to top of the bridge, on a south side. While you are there, take pictures of Underpass graffiti and visit nearby Corktown Common park and Garden of Future Follies. Everything is within 5 minutes walk.

Underpass Park is unique unconventional urban park built under overpass. With more than 50 overpass columns, colourful LED spotlights light the space in the evening, highlighting the park’s unique architecture and ensuring safety throughout the day. Its popular place for skateboarder.

Distillery district is also in vicinity and another spot to visit while you there.

Humber Bay, Toronto

Another scenic lookout in Toronto. Part of Toronto Waterfront Trail this small place just step from Humber Bridge and located in Humber Bay Park East. 

One of the great places to watch and take pictures of sunrise, as sun would rise just behind a Toronto skyline, creating amazing silhouette of city. 

Lake Crescent Park

Humber Bay, Toronto

Small park in Mimico with a great view of the City skyline.

A great place to sit and relax in the summer
