What about it?
Your best shot to see planes landing in this small airport is by the water in front of Little Norway Park. But don't get too excited. You won't see them very well nor for very long. As for the free ferry ride to get to the other side, anybody can hop on to welcome arriving travelers. It lasts only one minute. The windows are too high for preschoolers to check the view by themselves but if you can help them, they will enjoy it. The panorama of Toronto from the waiting room on the other side is nice. Note that they will eventually replace the airport ferry with a lift bridge.
