Toronto Islands Real Estate

The Toronto Islands neighbourhood is officially located in the downtown area of Toronto, but is a chain of small islands that extends into Lake Ontario. They're a very popular destination for recreation, and also home to a small number of residents. There are several ferry services that connect them to the mainland, along with a pedestrian tunnel that will go underwater and will be completed in 2014. The tunnel will be 800 feet long and have a moving walkway and elevators. The community is car free, although there are some service vehicles. Most people bike or walk wherever they need to go.

Because the area is popular for recreation, there are several beaches, an amusement park, yacht clubs, public marinas, festivals, concerts, and other fun things to do. A number of amenities are available, so people who are visiting or who choose to live there don't have to head over to the mainland to get the basics. There are approximately 300 homes for residents who want to live in the Toronto Islands neighbourhood. Daycare centers and a school are available, as well as work studios for artists in residency. Strict rules based on provincial law govern buying and selling of the homes in the community.

If you're interested in living on Toronto Islands, you'll want to find out more about the laws and work with a local real estate agent who can provide you with the right information about getting on the list, as the city of Toronto owns all home son the Island and they cannot be sold. In the meantime, visiting the area can be great fun and can really give you the opportunity to enjoy some of the best recreation that Toronto has to offer. Boating and swimming are both very popular activities there, and depending on when you're visiting you may be able to take in a concert or other great show on a lovely, warm evening.
