  • Notes:  Most of us know the Toronto Islands for Billy Bishop Airport and Centreville Theme Park. But did you know that people have been living there for centuries?  While the centre and west sides once had an amusement park, hotel, summer residences and even a baseball stadium where Babe Ruth hit his first professional home run, the east was historically a popular tenting community. Today, Algonquin Island and Ward’s Island are home to a community of 262 houses.
