Sugar Beach Park


Named after the Redpath Sugar Refinery next door, Sugar Beach is a sweet little spot located near Old Toronto. The urban beach park is filled with pastel-pink umbrellas and located by the water, so you can enjoy scenic views and sandy toes. Swimming is prohibited, unfortunately, but a maple-leaf splash pad kinda makes up for it.
