  • Always very busy. Lovely place to come in the summer. Clean and well kept beach. This is a nice swimming beach in the city. They have a licensed restaurant with food and various drinks. There is karaoke on Wednesdays (as well as our beach volleyball league, which is why I come here) On a windy day, come to see all the sailboats!
  • Beautiful, spacious park with large, mature trees. The beach is also quite spacious and sandy. The water area is sandy for the most part and you don't encounter many weeds until you're out quite far. The city tests the water daily so you know when it's safe to swim. There are outdoor showers on site as well as multiple washrooms. There is a also the Baha Burger shack which sells food and cold drinks. The number 16 bus services this beach and stops right in front of the main path.
  • Lots of various spots to eat in shade or get a tan. Baja Burger Shack for lunch/dinner. Or, bring briquettes to grill your food. Bathrooms always yucky. Water usually not swimmable. Still, a good way to spend a summer day with friends and/or family. You gotta make your own fun. You should go.
  • Plenty of parking. Very nice view. Lifeguards are very active. Can play beach volleyball.
  • Really nice park for BBQs, family activities and even Solo walks. I come here at times to do some online crafts there are a few areas by the water that are really beautiful, and get that creativity rolling.
