Centreville Amusement Park, Toronto

Centreville Amusement Park, Toronto (must see)

If you need a break from touring museums, strolling by shopping complexes and admiring monuments, the Centerville Amusement Park is the perfect getaway. Not just an average amusement park, the Centerville Amusement Park offers some of the oldest rides in the book. A proud owner of a vintage carousel that dates back to 1907, antique cars and swan boats, the Park manages to transport you to the yesteryears.

Just a hop, skip and jump away from the Union Station, Centerville Park is the most entertaining amusement park in Toronto. Nestled on an island off the shore of the main city, the Centerville Amusement Park is the place that has something for everyone.

Built in 1967, the Centerville Amusement Park has been Toronto’s most popular family holiday spot ever since. Open from June to September, most of the city’s denizens have grown up spending some of their most memorable holidays at the Park.

Although the Park may not offer over the top, adrenaline-pumping thrills, it is the best place to spend the perfect sunny day in Toronto. Spread over 600 acres, the Park boasts over 30 fun filled rides for adults and children, along with an array of food outlets where you can eat your favorite meal.

Tip:
Buy your ferry tickets online, together with ride passes & tickets to save time once at the park (you will still have to go to the ticket booth to get your bracelet, though).
You can buy individual ticket packs or a family pass which is great value if you analyze the cost of the unrestricted rides the older kids can go on.
For little ones, its better to purchase a pack of tickets rather than a day pass because they can only go on a few of the rides.
Bring a lunch, too, as there are great spots to have a picnic before you enter the amusement park.

Opening Hours:
Daily: 10:30am-8pm
