Beachfront Park & Millennium Square

Location

Beachfront Park rests on the north shore of Lake Ontario and can be accessed from the southern end of Liverpool Road or Alex Robertson Park at the southern end of Sandy Beach Road.

Acting as a protecting barrier, separating Hydro Marsh to the north, from Lake Ontario to the South, this beach offers a truly unique experience for any visitor.

Enjoy the natural beauty of the wetlands. The marsh provides great bird watching and fishing opportunities with common sightings of herons, terns and shorebirds.

The beach area is accompanied by a boardwalk, winding all the way up to Ontario Power Generation's (OPG) giant wind turbine - the largest in North America. Ample benches and shaded seating areas make it the perfect picnic spot for you and your family and friends.

Millennium Square

The Millennium Square is a large public square adjacent to the Beachfront Park where many of the summertime's entertainment take place. Alive with the electric energy of music, picnickers and passer byes, this is the perfect spot to catch a cool breeze off the lake and watch the sun go down.

Millennium Square also provides access to the Waterfront Trail.
