  • Small, but it's a decent location to take some great sunrise shots. The beach is covered with red rock broken pottery pipe.

  • Probably the most enjoyable area of Port Credit for a nice digestive walk. Obviously you need a nice sunny day

  • Great park for families - make sure you get there early to get a good spot - it gets busy really quick.

  • The place is actually nice, the park is kind of non conventional with sections being split up by the walkway and trees/brush. It's nice because you can always find a nook and have a little thing there. The splash pad is pretty nice, no control from the user though, it smells a bit chlorinated though. The swing/slide set is decent too, they have a large spinning thing you and a few friends can jump on and 4 big boy swings for a nice swing with your partner without someone waiting in line. The shore is very unique with the clay rocks instead of sand. It's tricky to walk or sit on but it's very pleasurable and calming to hear the water tide go in and out. Because the beach is rocks, as the water rolls in and out it makes a very unique sound where the rocks hit each other, a very nice place to read a book. However the water and surrounding area was a bit rank (probably due to a little rain the day before) and the water was murky. The shore opens up into a cove surrounded by two barges that kind of seal you off from the rest of the Burlington/Toronto shoreline, it sort of feels cozy because of this. All in all, not bad. Also the parking is adequate as well.
  • A wonderful place to go. Located besides Lake Ontario makes it a beautiful combination of sea and natural creatures. The lighthouse was extremely incredible around 7pm when we went to Lakeside Park. We didn’t get the chance to walk through the trail because it’s a little bit late, but we will try it out next time.
  • This is a pretty good lake spot. They have a good sized splash pad for the kids and a leash free dog park. The trail is pretty short though and it can become quite crowded. Personally I think any spot you can get close to the lake is good, I’m just not a fan of the peak times.
  • Perfect place to calm down at your own pace. The colorful stones at the beach are not jagged for the bare feet. There's a dog park for the animal lovers, a splash pad for families and a long shoreline for those willing to go further for some solitude.
  • Love the park. It's beautiful with something for all ages. Paths and hikes, even a water park. They even have a bike fix it station with tools and an airpump. I was impressed by that. Fabulous idea! Too bad people want to ruin it by leaving there garbage wherever they feel like along the waters edge. Even an entire fireworks display, all the garbage just left there...and you wonder why the ban us from lighting off fireworks on public beaches..well there you go folks! Still visit. It's lovely.
