Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Rouge Beach Park (Scarborough)

Family Tested
High energy

Bridge and all

Rouge Beach is relatively long and wide, with great sand, and it is equipped with changing rooms. It was a nice little "adventure" to get there. From the parking lot, we had to climb up stairs, cross over a bridge to get to a boardwalk (where we got a superb panorama of the lake). The beach looked like a seashore during low tide. The trail eventually took off from the edge of the cliff, so we came down the path to get to the beach itself. We saw many people fishing in the Rouge Marsh adjacent to the parking lot (accompanied by a large population of geese). Some were launching their canoes into Little Rouge Creek while others were canoeing back from Lake Ontario into the creek. Note that this beach is often unsuitable for swimming due to the many geese visiting this site.
