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 has been designated as an Environmentally Sensitive Area by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority due to its diversity of vegetation and significant natural features. The park is characterized by a barrier beach, sand bar coastal wetlands, meadows, and climax forest. The barrier beach is a dynamic beach and sand dune system that is dominated by marram grass and eastern cottonwood. This sand dune complex is a critically important and rare coastal ecological community that can be found in only a few locations within the Greater Toronto Area. The shoreline and dune stabilization process that is being undertaken by the TRCA has helped establish and protect the coastal wetlands found in Frenchman's Bay.

Some of the region's best surfing and kite boarding can be done here. The parks location and configuration provide for perfect winds and waves along the kilometre long sandy beach.

The park went through a public master planning process in 2012 and was reconstructed in several phases to make it more publicly accessible while retaining its natural features. The first phase of construction commenced in 2018 with the reconstruction of Beachpoint Promenade including layby parking, connection of the waterfront trail through the park, a picnic area and interpretive kiosk.  A section of Lake Ontario shoreline that was seeing a substantial amount of erosion, was restored in 2022. A new park washroom facility was constructed and the final phase of the master plan implementation along the barrier beach was completed in 2023.
