The island is amazing. This unique space is for artists to get their creative on in a natural environment. It's busy depending on the season, summer can be packed with people, but they tend to spend most of the time in the centre island and don't travel around much. The whole island experience, going slowly and taking in places like this one, will take about a day.
Beautiful facility. Was only there as makeup artist for filming of TV show, but was able to see a setup for wedding plus some of the island. A beautiful hidden gem of Ontario.

Amazing place. Can't wait to spend more time there and bring my family.
Attended a wedding here recently and everything was lovely. The staff was attentive and courteous, the food was delicious, and the drinks were generous. Only thing that would have minimized a bit of uncertainty would be signs posted (or more clearly posted if there were and I just couldnt see them) for where the restrooms are.
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.
