One of the best beaches for sun bathing and relax.
The North Shore of center island is amazing no matter the season.
Island lifestyle is not complete without resident artists keeping said lifestyle in check - laid back, hip, artsy, colourful.
When my partner and I were looking for a wedding venue, we knew we wanted something in Toronto, but with a big nature feature. We checked out a couple of other places, but they were either too expensive, or too tacky. After an unfruitful scouting day, we Googled "affordable wedding venues Toronto" and found the AGP on a list. We had no idea this place existed, but it made perfect sense for us!
We always spend time on the island every summer, and we love being near the water. It simply made sense. And, the price was right. And, when we saw the beautiful outdoor space, that sealed the deal for us.
Working with the AGP team was a breeze. Since they are on the Islands, they have a preferred list of vendors, and chartered boat contacts. Plus, they host a unique Wedding Share event each year for couples getting married there. The Wedding Share is a space that allows all the couples to meet, sample wares from the vendors, and discuss specific decor items that other couples, or the venue, might be willing to split the cost on. It was a real community feeling.
Another great aspect of the AGP is that they are non-profit. All the money made from event rentals goes back into helping cover the costs for the artist residences on the property year-round. I loved the feeling of giving back.
On the day, the clouds refused to go away, but the team was on the ready to move everything inside to the Beacon and Fireplace rooms. Fortunately, the rain never came and everything was held outside on those beautiful lawns, under the tall trees.
The night was truly magical, and I think the AGP played a vital role in making that magic happen.

Welcome To Artscape Gibraltar Point!
I found out about this place by accident while visiting The Toronto Islands.
The Artscape Gibraltar Point is adjacent to a beach on Lake Ontario and
offers artists and creatives an ideal place to focus on their practice and projects while staying at their residence.
I really enjoyed what I briefly saw during my visit back on Monday, July 16, 2018 and You will too!
