Not Just a Park: A History of Toronto Island

A documentary film by Michael Kainer

The Toronto Island has always been more than beaches and park. It has also provided a summer playground of amusements, hotels and baseball stadiums. Summer cottages became permanent homes to several hundred people who spent decades fighting to save them from destruction. The film tells the Island's story.
