The park is next to the marina. The beach is fairly big. The water looked clean. We were there on a Friday late afternoon and it was a bit overcast. Not crowded. Very peaceful. Many boats coming and going. Enjoyed our brief visit.

I really enjoyed seeing Lake Ontario and this beautiful beach park. So clean and well maintained. The marina was fun to see and we were able to eat lunch in a waterfront restaurant. Glad we visited.

Very pretty park and a long, long pier. Sad to see the graffiti on the end of the pole. Also, bathrooms without stall doors are gross and lack any sense of privacy. Beautiful beach, nice marina. Sad to see Carousel not open during the day....More

A friend brought us to the Ontario Beach Park for a walk out on the Breakwater. At first glance the park looks quite nice, as we walked along I noticed all the trash on the grass ~ a shame because there are plenty of trash...More

Great place to let your hair down and stretch your legs while getting some of that great "sea" breeze. Sand, shade trees, long pier, boat and people watching - ice cream, beach volleyball, pickleball and charchoal grille cookouts - all good. There are a few...More

Whenever we have out-of-town guests, we ALWAYS bring them to Ontario Beach Park - even in the dead of winter. All year round, there are plenty of events going on, things to do, people to watch, and time to kill. This is an excellent place...More
