  • It's pretty natural scenic location near Toronto city. I guess maybe a must visit especially if you are a new comer. 
  • Scarborough Bluffs is not a place at the address above - it is about 10km of sandy beach underneath sandstone cliffs along the city's East side. Make your way to the beach and head East - pretty soon ...  more »
  • Best to research where you are going to park and what you want to do there. Unique views of the bluffs from underneath and on top; Lake Ontario, trails, beaches, rocky edges. Went there to picnic and ...  more »

  • Beautiful (absolutely gorgeous) but do NOT go on a long weekend unless you plan to get there at 9 am or you won't be able to find parking or a good spot to sit. There is only one road down so if you arrive anytime after 11 am you will wait in a massive line up and then just have to turn around and drive out. This past August long weekend (Civic Holiday) they actually had to close the road down because it was so busy. Better to go one day during the week if you can, it will be a much more enjoyable experience.
  • 「Scarborough Bluffers Park 士嘉堡斷崖公園」位於安大略湖東岸,因有65 米高的天然斷崖而出名,也為「萬湖之省」(全省有25萬個湖泊)的「Ontario 安大略」的「湖」光增添了「山」色;險峻的斷崖,讓湛藍的湖水益顯婉約秀麗。 多倫多政府為淨化安大略湖工業污染,於 2000年採用瑞典科學家 Karl Dunkers 所研發的「The Dunkers Flow Balancing System (DFBS) 污水處理系統」,不再遠途輸送污水至淨水廠,而「就地」使用質輕且廉宜的「Pontoon 浮橋」及其垂掛的塑膠屏幕擋去雨水及城市下水道污物。經過十多年的實驗檢測,現已大幅度改善大湖水質,且保留了斷崖附近的美景和水禽植物的生態平衡。DFBS 系統通常建在湖泊或海洋岸邊,由於無須規劃地上設施以及使用質輕又美觀的材料,其建造成本相對較低廉,且除了同具淨水功效外,還可為水生動植物提供棲息之所。
  • Nice view at the top and bottom of the Bluffs. I went both in the summer and fall season and were both great seasons to visit. The only downfall I would say it that there are way too many bugs other than mosquitoes flying around. So it makes an individual who are not a fan of insects hard to enjoy.
  • Fun!! Great view. Very calm and quiet. I've been told there's a way to walk down the bluffs straight to the beach. But you can also drive to the marina at the bottom and walk to the beach easily... Only a few minutes drive down to the beach.
  • A fantastic park to explore and very beautiful. Watch out for parking however as during the summer it is useless to think one will actually get parked. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the fencing that the city has put up, which because of some unsafe people doing silly things now ruins the gorgeous views that should be readily available for all to see.
