It's a beautiful park alongside Lake Ontario. Lovely view of Toronto skyline on a clear day. The only downside is lack of enough parking space and the park is always overcrowded.

We booked Area B and had group picnic there , water and electric on the site, very convenience, you can swim, play volleyball, soccer, water park, etc in the park, always fun there. But parking is difficult too, and sometime not so clean.

Lake Ontario views at its best. The Toronto skyline looks terrific from this park. You are just steps away from the lake with free parking. And you can walk along to Rattray Marsh very pleasant

Google maps is the best way to find this park!!! More in the Clarkson area, south of the Lakeshore, just keep driving until you reach the lake. :-)
