We were biking around the island and found it along the route. It was closed so we couldn't go inside it. There is a plaque explaining the historical aspect of the lighthouse. It was nice to get a few photos. Nice design, well maintained and...More
This is the second oldest lighthouse in Canada and Toronto's oldest building. If you are lucky there is a great ghost story associated with it and it is told well in a spooky location. A fun piece of history.
Ok, if you are passing it’s worth having a look otherwise don’t go out of your way. Small lighthouse with a plaque on the wall telling a short history of the building. Would have been nice to go up it but unfortunately it is not...More

Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
