The Waterfront

Toronto

The Waterfront is one of the most tranquil neighbourhoods in Toronto. Located along the shores of Lake Ontario, this former shipping port has transformed into a retreat within the city. Walking trails meander along the water and music is always around the corner. The Toronto Music Garden and the Harbourfront Centre have year-round events.

What It's Like

Tranquillity and recreation. Adults and children can take sailing lessons, swim, and ride bikes along the water. Commuters can quickly transit to Union Station for the subway or GO Transit. Entertainment venues are also plentiful, with the Air Canada Centre, CNE, Rogers Centre Skydome, and CN Tower all close by!  

The Neighbourhood

Are relaxed. It’s true! People who choose Waterfront real estate in Toronto have decided to live a calmer lifestyle than those in the core. The majority of people are under the age of 45, but retirees also choose to buy condos on the water.


The lake of course! There is nothing as wonderful as waking up by the water. Festivals are on all year, like the Island Soul festival, concerts, free movie nights, and the weekend Lake View Market. Walk to St. Lawrence Market, or hail a water taxi to the Toronto Islands. Explore beaches, bike paths, a petting zoo, and an amusement park. Get lunch on the island and dance to more free music on land, or listen from a boat!
