“Faaahreezing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The beaches are a great walk in the summer time. The boardwalk is always a great 'feel good' walk, but this time of year is super cold. Wait for the spring and enjoy the beauty then !

“Toronto Beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

The Beaches neighbourhood is fun with lots of little stores and restaurants. There is a dog off-leash beach at the end. The beach and water quality is assessed constantly and is usually good.

“Ice and snow instead of sand and sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Very pretty place with all the ice and snow and colorful Christmas lights and decorations. Colored fairy lights in the trees along the boardwalk. Very coolish, slippery walking conditions on the ice, snow and slush with squirrels scampering around and lots of dogs out for their walk.

“Went here for Canada Day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

It was nice to come here on Canada Day and see all the fireworks! I hope to come here again next year. The beaches were huge as well so there was plenty of space for the masses of people that were there!
