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.

Beachfront Park sustained significant damage from the high-water levels and increased frequency of intense storm events in 2017 and 2019. The boardwalk, which formed part of the Waterfront Trail, was damaged beyond repair and was removed by City staff in the spring of 2020. A Park Rehabilitation and Needs Assessment Study was completed in 2021 and plans are in the works for the reconstruction of the park. New features that are proposed include an elevated walking and cycling path across the beach to reconnect the waterfront trail, viewing platforms overlooking Hydro Marsh, and improved washroom facilities.
