Garden Community

The Toronto Parks Commission manages the islands that make up Toronto Island, including operating the ferries.  Most of the the islands are very park like with the exception of the communities on Algonquin and Ward Islands. These are more like gardens - varying degrees of care, but all lush and green.  The climate is obviously just slightly milder compared to the mainland as several plants can be found here that would not survive even a few kilometres away from the lake.


  1. John, beautiful sketches on Wards Island !.......sorry I could not join you, maybe next time. JB

  2. Sketches are a minimalist concept introducing a universe. I lived on Wards Island as a boy, taking the Ferry to school. Learning to fly on my father's knee. aloha
