  • I have been coming to JDP for three decades now and there's something for everyone regardless of your age and activities. Our dogs love the leash free park, my nieces and nephews love the waterpark, my brother loves to run along the trails. There are three beach areas and one we call pebble beach because instead of sand it has pebbles. The Rattray Marsh is there for those that love nature...This is a beautiful park and there's a lot to love!
  • I love the soft sandbar which makes it safe for non swimmers and the water is tepid. The sand on the beach is soft and the water is clear. Parking is free which is awesome. My ONLY complaint is some fly is literally attacking me and I feel as its biting me as well which makes me want to run back into the water and swim with the kids instead of soaking up the sun lol!
  • This is a great park for little kids. The playground equipment is modern and clean and very accessible for toddlers. The waterfront provides a fantastic view of Toronto's skyline and there's lots of space for a picnic. Our only disappointment was that we went there on Canada Day to watch the fireworks from a distance, hoping to avoid the crowds of Port Credit with our 2-year old. This was to be his first time seeing fireworks and we were all very excited. Then a security guard came at 9:30 and told us we had to leave so she could close the gates. I was very surprised that on Canada Day they would tell us and about 50 other people to vacate. We ended up in a mad rush to drive to downtown Port Credit, find parking and make our way to the docks and just barely caught the tail end of the fireworks display. Not the experience we were hoping for.
  • It was my first time there today and it was wonderful. Peaceful, nature at it's finest. They should make more grenade space and enhance the ones that are already around.
  • This is a great park to take your kids to. There is a splash pad, lots of picnic tables, washrooms, swings and slides, a water front and if it is hot enough, you could even swim here. The downside is parking is hard to find on weekends in the summer and the park is quite busy.
