The Toronto Islands are a chain of small islands in Lake Ontario. The islands are located just offshore from the Canadian city of Toronto, and provide shelter for Toronto Harbour. The islands are a popular recreational destination, and are home to a small residential community and to Toronto Island Airport. They are connected to the mainland by several ferry services. The islands comprise the largest urban car-free community in North America, though some service vehicles are permitted. Recreational bicyclists are accommodated on the ferries, and bicycles and quadricycles can be rented on the islands.
