Brimley south of Kingston Road. Free parking, lots of walkways near the water, as well as a marina, and a really nice beach. Also benches and a few picnic tables. Bathrooms should be open during the day but are locked. Really dumb. Recommended

Always enjoy sitting on the balcony overlooking the small boats and lake. The service is very friendly and the food is good. Worth the drive. Only restaurant in Toronto located on the water. Downstairs is a more pub like restaurant.

The bluffs are unique to Toronto... there is not one other place like it in the city. Tall sculpted sandstone cliff shaped by teh lake and currents over thousands of years... There are marinas, yacht clubs, a large park and an amazing white sand beach that is very popular. (yes even a couple of restaurants)

Visited this park with my daughters in mid October. The trees had began turning colors. This park was very peaceful and Serene. Great place for a picnic, and/or family gatherings. As the sun went down, the sky lit up with a beautiful sunset behind the bluffs. (My photos do not do this park justice).

Driving down near the marina and then walking out to the bluffs at Bluffers Park is truly a wonderful experience. The natural sand carvings of nature are truly spectacular. Be sure to take a camera or drone to capture this natural wonder in the heart of the city.

Walking along the top of the Scarborough Bluffs, a long stretch of 300 foot high Ice Age sedimentary deposits, gives you a wonderful view of the vastness of Lake Ontario. You also see the man-made, peninsular parkland far below that stretches along the base of the near-vertical cliffs. Built in the 1970s, this vast area includes grassed picnic areas, long,... More

Always find my way up to the cliffs, to take in the scenery. Breath-taking and then, the beach itself.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
