Cool place. There's always something going on here, whether it's a cultural event, or art displays/performances. Easy to get to by transit, and near the lake. It's easy to go for a walk by the lake after stopping by here. Volunteer-run. They've also got a free skating rink out back, and a cafe where you can grab food and drinks.
Living in a busy city such as Toronto that is forever expanding and being built up, Harbourfront offers a welcome sense of serenity. I've spent a lifetime growing up attending events held by the water and now am continuing the tradition. No matter the season, there is always what to do, whether enjoying shows, vendors, special exhibitions or just the lapping sound of the water, this is one of the most beautiful locations within the city.
