“Better in the summer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

A nice little stroll, even when the weather's not great. A good selection of pubs off the beach, too - although they're not very lively until the warmer months.

“Great boardwalk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

A perfect place to walk for a few hours in summer and the breeze off the lake is wonderful. The number of walkways keep expanding so you'll never tire of the different views - and there is ice cream when you need a break. In summer you can see the beach volleyball teams compete which is a lot of fun too.

“Slums”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Overcrowded, very cramped, dirty, stinky-est part of the whole city, rude / profane, low-class people with artificial sense of value.

“Nice off leash spot for dogs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

There is a designated off leash section for you to take your dogs for a romp on the beach. The best part is that dogs don't know it is November and run in and out of Lake Ontario splashing and having a great time. Nice and clean and safe.

“Don't see what the fuss is all about”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Maybe it's because I grew up in a small town, but all it is is a small town atmosphere within the city. Lots of impractical stores selling expensive goo gaws and, unfortunately, lots of rude, nouveau riche people elbowing you in the stores and on the street. I prefer to stay west of Woodbine along Queen.
