Centreville Amusement Park 

Located on Centre Island and surrounded by over 600 acres of picturesque parkland, Centreville Amusement Park is the ultimate summer destination for families with young children. With over 30 rides and attractions - plus Far Enough Farm - this theme park offers up a full day of family fun. Getting to Centreville is almost as exciting as the park itself - everyone will enjoy the scenic ride on the Centre Island ferry!


Centreville is a turn-of-the-century Ontario village theme park located just minutes from the downtown core on Toronto's Centre Island. Specializing in kid-sized thrills, Centreville offers a unique selection of modern and antique rides that will delight children and adults alike! Kids can get plenty of driving experience zooming around in the antique cars, touring cars or fire engines. Spin yourself silly in the self-propelled Beasley Bear Ride and Twirling Tea Cups; or enjoy picturesque views from atop our windmill-style Ferris Wheel.


Those who can handle a few more thrills may want to tackle the rough seas aboard the Rockin' Ferry Ride, spin around in the Scrambler, ride on the Monster Coaster, take a plunge in the Log Flume Ride or bounce around in Bumper Boats and Bumper Cars.


Gotten your fill of thrills? Head on over to Far Enough Farm where you can interact with mini potbelly pigs, horses, mini ponies, sheep and much more! This family friendly farm and petting zoo, located right on the edge of Centreville, is open 365 days a year, weather permitting.


Centreville offers kid-sized thrills, laughter, great food, fun and relief from the city's heat.
