Rotary Frenchman's Bay West Park is located on the southwest shore of Frenchman's Bay on Beachpoint Promenade off the south end of West Shore Drive.

The Rotary Frenchman's Bay West Park is an environmentally sensitive area (designated by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority) with diverse vegetation and significant natural features.

The park is one of Pickering’s cherished waterfront gems and went through extensive reconstruction over several phases, from 2018-2023. 

The work included new layby parking, connection of the waterfront trail through the park, a picnic area and interpretive kiosk, shoreline restoration, new walkways, accessible canoe/kayak launch, lighting, and a comfort station.

Public art features

  • Indigenous public art piece “Water is Medicine,” created by the art collective Dbaajmowin (story/narrative, Ojibwe Eastern and Odawa dialect) supported by SpruceLab Inc., was installed.

  • “Our House” by Dorsey James. The sculptor considers this piece one of his “Kijimba Kind” works, a piece that symbolizes spirit children of all types, colours, history, and religion. It is reminiscent of the different directions, choices, and challenges that we might encounter in our lives.
