Polson Pier, previously known as The Docks Waterfront Entertainment Complex or The Docks, is a multi-purpose entertainment venue in Toronto, Ontario. It is located in largely industrial Port Lands area of the city along the shore of Toronto Harbour.
The Lakeview Drive-In is located at the far end of the driving range that is used during the day. The site is converted into a drive-in theater at sunset. It is the only drive-in movie theatre in downtown Toronto. Open on summer weekends, the drive-in can accommodate up to 1200 people and 500 vehicles.
In 1999 there was discussion that ferries from the Toronto Ferry Services should depart from a landing at the Docks.
On July 24, 2006 the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario revoked the Docks' liquor licence. This was the culmination of a 10-year-long dispute with the Toronto Islands' residents regarding excessive noise.  On July 28, 2006 the Court of Appeal for Ontario judge granted a stay, pending an appeal heard January, 2007.  By the summer of 2008, the complex had been sold to new owners who took measures to appease its neighbours, including ending all-night parties and soundproofing its indoor venue.

With the successful boardwalk takeover behind him, flamboyant Dock’s owner Jerry Sprackman--who is now demanding his own ferry dock at the foot of Polson Street-- has city bureaucrats working out the details of a ‘pilot project’ that could pinch city taxpayers with a whopping $475,000.
