Scarborough Bluffs, Toronto Reviews

  • The view is amazing. When you walk from the street to the waterfront you end up on the top of the cliffs (Bluffs). The trail is walking along the cliffs and offer an amazing view all along!

  • The park was accessible on Christmas day. It was pretty much cover by snow. This park makes for some good pictures overlooking the lake and the Scarborough Bluffs.

  • I love this place there is a beach or u could walk or even bike. There is something for everyone! In summer I went there It was so fun I got to take lovely photos!

  • The view of the bluffs is excellent. Saying that, one must climb over the fence to get to the vantage point. This is both illegal and potentially expensive, the bluffs’ terrain is not stable, so it’s dangerous too. Other than the vantage point, there’s really nothing special about this place though...

  • I absolutely love this park I've been going here for 10 years it's a small park but great for BBQ and doing other activities there there is two beeches and 2 parks both small but great. The only thing I dislike about the park is the parking it's a small parking lot and if you do want to get a good parking space or A parking space you can come early. I usually come When the sun is setting because all the families would be leaving and I could get a parking space. It is a very clean park no trash on the ground or in the lake. I would highly recommend this park.
