Canada is the second largest country in the world and it stretches across a continent from one coast to the other with many large bodies of fresh water in between. Toronto is a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the iconic, free-standing CN Tower. Toronto also has many green spaces, from the orderly oval of Queen’s Park to 400-acre High Park and its trails, sports facilities and zoo.
Toronto Harbour is one of the most unique and controlled waterways in North America. Within its boundaries are densely populated beaches, a working port, a regional airport, numerous sailing and yacht clubs, and many, many ferries. It’s home to markings and restrictions that aren’t seen anywhere else.
It may be intuitive to assume that the Toronto Harbour refers to just the inner harbour sheltered by the Toronto islands between the Western Channel and East Gap. In fact, the applicable area is two miles long and one mile wide, ranging south of the islands from West Humber bay to the Eastern Beaches. The southern perimeter is measured one mile south of Mimico Creek, Gibraltar Point, and Victoria Park.
