Most people visiting Toronto won't get to Ashbridges Bay Park. It's a park in the east end of Toronto that affords the opportunity of walking by the lake and being able to see the city from a distance. It's a good walk no matter what the season. If you take a picnic with you there are lots of picnic benches to sit at and some are right next to the water. To get there you'd take the Queen Street car east to the Coxwell stop and then walk south to the entrance of the park. You have to cross Lakeshore Road. It's about a 10 minute walk from the streetcar stop. There is a public washroom there and a very wide beach. In the summer Ashbridges Beach i where the volleyball competitions take place.

My fiance and I have traveled to this beach and park in July, 2013 and it has been a tan-only day for us. All of the beach volleyball courts were taken and the people were not willing to share. The community center that is a walk away from the beach with a swimming pool was closed for the summer-which was a big let down for us as we didn't see that information anywhere online. People were actually standing outside the doors and bickering about how absurd this is. The trip was a waste of time and body fluids really...Really nice nature around the beach and in the park, though. You can enjoy live music (some of which may be ethnic) performances on your walk from the parking lot to the beach/park.

Coming from London I couldnt imagine a beach so near to a city and a sandy beach on a lake!! but what a little treasure it was, we parked easily, right on the beach and near the toilet and changing block, and the parking was free!! The beach is very wide so lots of space, it was clean and well looked after. We went for a few hours before we flew home after travelling back from Niagara Falls.

What a shame that this beach has the worst lake bottom I've ever been on. Rocks that dig into your feet so you cannot ever stand in it. It's cold, but that's to be expected. There is not enough parking - we drove around probably 45 minutes or so trying to find a place. Ended up at the far end of the park and walking quite a distance to get to the beach area. Not much in the way of food or rest rooms. The safety though, was quite good, with lifeguards actually watching carefully. Beach was clean enough. Could be soooo much nicer.

a nice green space with plenty of parking($), you can walk or bike for miles.If you go further east to the Beaches its getting harder to park.
