About The Beach, Toronto

This waterfront neighborhood gets its name from the four beaches (which are four sections of one unbroken beach) connected by its three kilometre long boardwalk and Martin Goodman Trail bike path - Woodbine Beach, Kew Beach, Scarboro Beach, and Balmy Beach. But the neighborhood’s appeal extends to its streets, a collection of Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings with lots of specialty shops. And between the beaches and the streets is an extensive park system, some of which, such as the Kew Gardens, are prominent attractions in their own right. In combination these three elements create a devastatingly charming area for strolling at leisure. The highlights are:

  • The beaches listed above, the boardwalk and Martin Goodman Trail.
  • Balmy Beach Park, Ivan Forrest Gardens, Pantry Park, Ashbridges Bay Park, Woodbine Park.
  • The Kew Gardens, the Dr. William D. Young Memorial and the 1901 Kew Williams House.
  • The 1908 Whitelock's Grocery Store
  • George Davis House
  • Ashbridge's Bay and Park
  • R. C. Harris Water Treatment Plant
  • Fox Theatre - North America's oldest continuously operated movie theatre.
  • The Goof Canadian Chinese Restaurant
  • Glenn Gould's family home, 32 Southwood Drive
  • The 1920 Leuty Lifeguard Station

Some of the people who call or have called this area home include Glenn Gould, Miley Cyrus, Peter Robinson, Keanu Reeves, and Keifer and Donald Sutherland.
