Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Bluffer's Park (Scarborough)

Family Tested
High energy
Fall Color

Cliffs from below

This beach, at first quite broad, narrows gradually. Its sand is one of the finest I've seen along Lake Ontario. My little lad threw himself down and made an angel with his arms and legs as soon as we got there. The beach spreads at the end of the fourth parking lot to the east of Bluffer's Park. You reach it on foot via a small road that borders the base of the cliffs. As we walked further east along the beach, we discovered a source of playful inspiration in the pieces of polished beach wood lying here and there. People had built a sort of camp out of them that seemed solid enough to survive the winter. I hope it’s still there! I don't know if it is common every year but when we visited in early October, there was a multitude of red ladybugs every other step on the beach. The fall colours in the trees on the white cliffs were beautiful.
