For almost a century, the Toronto Island's venerable clubhouses
have been a community home for members and guests in the
pursuit of leisure, whether amateur sports, recreational activities,
or other social events.
These days, the community-operated clubhouses and the public space in the Shaw House are also
rented to the public for a range of events, from corporate retreats and barbecues to full weekend weddings.
Each building has its own charm and personality; all are infused with Island Spirit and a propensity for good times.
Located on Algonquin Island, the AIA overlooks the city and the harbour. This charming community hall with gorgeous skyline views is available year-round. It is situated amid acres of pristine parkland adjacent to a quiet residential neighbourhood.
THE SHAW HOUSE
A short walk from the Ward's ferry dock, the Shaw House features a charming
and intimate venue that is available for rent year round. Features include a
full kitchen, accessible washroom
and a sizeable garden overlooking
Just 300 feet south of the Ward's Island Ferry dock at the eastern point of Toronto Islands, the summer-only WIA and adjacent fenced in yard are rented for weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, reunions, dances, company meetings, seminars & picnics.
