Escape the city, pack a picnic and head down to Jack Darling Memorial Park, a scenic waterfront park which makes the ideal spot for a family outing. This public park has two large picnic areas, with barbeques and running water available, making it the perfect place to stop for a spot of lunch. Within the park, you'll find pedestrian, bicycle, and waterfront trails as well as beaches where you can take a dip and cool off on a hot day. Two large play areas, big open spaces, a taboggan hill, tennis courts, and a splash area make the park great for young children.

Jack Darling Memorial Park reviews
I love going to this little park. Sizable green space on Lake Ontario with a dog park, playground, splash pad & picnic areas and next door to Ratray marsh which is also a fabulous place to explore... more »
It isn’t far away from toronto also has a spectacular city view. On weekend you should go early to get your spot due to limited spot however it is worth it. more »
This park is mainly for picnickers. There is plenty of green area and water park for the kids. There is also nice walking path with good lake view. However, if you wanted to hike the Marsh area... more »
Love this place. Very peaceful and quiet ...really enjoy all the trees. The city does a good job of keeping it up. The dogs love it too. Great off the leash area as well.
Go to the waterfront. There are car parking places around. Though didn't spot the beach. There are picnic benches and a children's play area with swings for a small family to relax. This place is good if you prefer a leisure walk enjoying views of water waves and Toronto downtown at a distance.
I come here often with my dog to stroll through the dog park. It's such a wonderful place for both her and I. There is enough room for her to wander and for me to walk around. There are many different terrains and levels. I'm sure she enjoys it just as much as I do! The rest of the park is also wonderful. It's a great place for picnics and walking around.
This is definitely my favourite off-leash dog park in the GTA and is one of the biggest dog parks in Ontario. Although the whole park is fenced off, at times it does not feel like it because the park is clean, has wooded areas, hills, flat-open areas and just a lot of space for dogs to roam. If you're not comfortable with letting your dog in the wide open area, there's also a smaller fenced area. I've seen the smaller dogs use it so it's an awesome park for all to enjoy! There's a parking lot right at the entrances of the dog park and plenty of parking. There's even a hill that kids and families use for sledding in the winter which is fenced off so you don't have to worry about your dogs bothering the kids.
It is a nice setting park for family. Although the weather is still cold, you will see a different Lakeshore with a very unique feel. There is free parking and public washrooms but the washrooms are not open until spring.
