Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Cedar Beach Park (Stouffville)

Family Tested
High energy

A private matter

The sign atop the stone gate, adorned with gothic lettering, brings to mind a summer camp from the 50's. The entrance's iron doors frame a blue square of water below and as we reach the stairs, the wide private beach reveals itself, promising an afternoon of fun. The shores of Musselman's Lake are comfortably shallow for a distance, and the deeper water is well marked with buoys. My young engineers found out that the sand worked well for elaborate projects of bridges and tunnels. Kayaks, canoes and paddle boats can be rented by the day users. The two parks near the parking lot include nice playgrounds. Allow for some time to play in them before heading back home! It is better to call before going to check on the water quality for the day.

    Well, that's not nice isn't it, you should let anyone enjoy the park and the amenities by just paying for a daily entrance fee! That's rude and discriminating.

    It is completely closed off and restricted only to campers. Very disappointed. Not a friendly community.

    the beach is now closed to non-residents.
    You can camp there and use all the amenities.
