Beautiful to swim and relax. Fun for activities. Can't bbq but a nice picnic area is enticing. Every age group would appreciate this beach and free parking for now.

We visited Sunset beach in St Catharines hoping for to see a wonderful sunset but was unfortunately cloudy that evening. Wonderful beach with free parking. Get place to stroll along the beach and enjoy the scenery.

This is such an under-utilized area of St. Catharines. Usually pretty clean... the only draw back is the stinky smells that emanate from the waste control plant when the wind is in the wrong direction. There's a few picnic tables and a large grassy area,...More

Perfect place to catch the sun set. Let the kids play at the park and relax at the beach. This beach is tucked away in the north end of St. Catharines.

I'm sorry- I can't answer that- boats do launch- I'm not sure on the size. There are two marinas however in town.
