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. View the location.

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 City is moving forward with reconstruction of Beachfront Park

The park sustained significant damage from high-water levels and intense storm events in 2017/2019, and the boardwalk (part of the Waterfront Trail), was damaged beyond repair and subsequently removed in 2020.

A Park Rehabilitation and Needs Assessment Study was completed in 2021, along with community, staff, and TRCA consultation, resulting in several design options.

Council has endorsed a preferred design option, which will include an elevated walking and cycling path across the beach to reconnect the waterfront trail, viewing platforms overlooking Hydro Marsh, and improved washroom facilities.

Construction is anticipated to start in the fall of 2024 and take approximately 12 months.

Millennium Square

The Millennium Square is a large public square adjacent to Beachfront Park and the Nautical Village 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.  

Facilities include

  • lakeside children's splash pad play area
    (9:00 am to 9:00 pm, weather permitting)
  • seasonal washrooms (8:00 am to 9:00 pm)
  • seating & Lake Ontario views
  • picnicking areas
  • Thursday Night Summer Concerts

Millennium Square also provides access to the Waterfront Trail.
