Nice place but nothing special. The view is not special, because of the fabric in the front of the beach.
I suggest to visit it during the sunrise when beach is empty.

You may never see anything else like it. Built with a small fortune of taxpayers monies you have a "green space" of sand ( specially designed) , metal shade umbrellas ($$$) and chairs to sit on. But it is unique and part of Waterfront Toronto and making activity people space in a concrete jungle. Be cautioned this is not a "Beach" and there is no water access. Freighters (Toronto's last commercial freight dock) and Billy Bishop Landings and take offs are fun to watch. A George Brown campus is adjacent. What is remarkable is that this is a NOVEL and UNIQUE approach to Urban Landscape design and the attempt must be applauded in a waterfront of cement and condos and delimited water access. Kudos for the attempt. ( Check out the waterpark just north across the street).

High end. This was a lovely spot to sit for a drink and watch the water and setting sun. Quiet and clean. Felt like o was at a beach club in the tropics. Sunset was absolutely gorgeous!!

I was looking forward to walking along a beach and getting my feet wet, unfortunately there is no swimming at this “beach”...there is a sand area with umbrellas where people lay out to tan... this visit was a waste of time for us

Trekked all the way to visit this beach with my kids because the photos from various sites made it look quaint and appealing. What a huge disappointment! My kids called it “ghetto”- trash everywhere, faded “pink” umbrellas, no water access. Don’t bother. We should have gone to Toronto Islands instead.

I didn't know what to expect when coming to the beach - never been to a city beach before. A bit of a disappointment, the docks are an eyesore and there is an unpleasant smell nearby. If you don't look at the docks and instead out over the water however it can be pleasant.

This is a great beach right downtown just east of Harbourfront Centre. It's not huge but isn't small either and has lots of umbrellas and chairs and it's all free. Like others have said you can't swim at the beach here but there's a splash pad to keep cool in and lots of shade. Definitely great if you want a wicked view of downtown while relaxing in the sand.

This is a great place to relax and unwind from central Toronto. It is crazy to think this place is in Toronto. It is perfect

Walked my kids a half hour to see the pink umbrella with white sand beach. Huge disappointment. There was garbage all over the sand. Chairs were broken. The splash pad was not working. They didn’t want to stay to even have lunch before the walk back.
