  • Beautiful grounds. Spotless beach. Modern facilities. 42 thousand Canada Geese. Canadiana at its most amazing!
  • Lots of parking and a public washroom that is bright. I love the newly redone paths and boardwalk. They allow open fires for cooking too propane or charcoal only
  • One of the best beaches + park around! So much to offer for everyone with the new renovations. Grass or sand - take your pick for the the beautiful view or to go swimming. Rentals available as well. Bike lanes and walkways. Clean washrooms. Loved it!
  • Beautiful beach to swim at, or just take a walk around Kempenfelt Bay. A lot going on at Centennial Beach on the weekends in the summer.
  • Excellent birding here, particularly for winter water birds. The main problems are that non-residents of Barrie must pay exhorbitant prices for parking and there are no washroom facilities open in the fall/winter/spring.
