How fortunate we were to find this wonderful park/beach on the edge of Lake Ontario during our visit to Toronto. The beach is beautiful, very clean, and swimming is permitted in the lake. Several trees on the beach provide some shelter from the heat of the July sun, and there are also some logs on the beach to sit on... More

Amazing place to walk and take in the view during the summer. The west side is quieter and more suited to families. Easily hit you 10k steps for you day and not even feel it.

Park located on a strip between Lake Shore Boulevard and Lake Ontario. Martin Goodman Trail passes through the park. Lifeguards are on duty in the beach during summer. The boardwalk is nice along shoreline. There are some fast food vendors in busy days. Parking is nightmare during weekends.

Went there with my friends. Its a nice place for families and youngsters for sports like walking, jogging, bicycling & roller skating etc. Although the parking is paid, nevertheless, park & beach are free for everyone. The views are really great, specially at sunrise & sunset.

My son and I went for a swim first in the lake, then in the pool. Even though the Pavilion is being renovated at the moment - the pool was still wonderful, free and worth the visit. [lockers just 25cents] Its incredibly close to Queen Street West [the Roncesvalles side] and was minutes away from our hotel. There was several... More

You can easily park at the beach or you can take ttc. It is quite easy to get to over the walking bridge at King/Queen/Roncesvalles. Bring a picnic, Frisbee, swimsuit, blanket, water bottle, camera and sunscreen. A perfect spot to walk on boardwalk or just sit and enjoy the waterfront. Washrooms are cleaned regularly. There are snack shops and a... More

Sunnyside Beach is one of Toronto's great treasures and it is completely free. Bike and walking trails, a large park with open field as well as shaded picnic areas and a clean, roped-off swimming area. Food, drinks and restrooms are all available in the pavillion. A children's playground and wading pool is located a very short walk to the East... More
