Centreville Amusement Park

Toronto Islands

From Centre Island ferry terminal, wander past the information booth to quaint Centreville's antique carousel, goofy golf course, miniature train and little-kids' rides. Far Enough Farm petting zoo presents plenty of opportunities to cuddle something furry and step in something sticky. There's no admission fee to the park, but you need to purchase a pass to use the rides. It's most fun for families with kids aged seven and under.
