Cathedral Bluffs Park offers spectacular views of the bluffs and Lake Ontario. The tall spires of the eroded sandstone cliffs rise more than 90 metres above Lake Ontario. This is one of the highest points along the bluffs, a result of the coincidence of the Lake Ontario and glacial Lake Iroquois shorelines.
This park is part of Scarborough Bluffs.
Important: There is no access to the water at this park. Stay behind fences and obey no trespassing signs as the bluffs are unstable. Access the water from Bluffer's Park, Sylvan Park, Guild Park and Gardens, or East Point Park. History
At one time, much of the parkland belonged to the Sisters of St. Joseph, whose property extended from Kingston Road to the lake. Much of the property was sold to Dolphin Developments who planned to develop a residential neighbourhood on the property. Permission for building the subdivision was granted on the condition that the southern section be turned into a park. Ownership of that land was transferred to the municipality of Metropolitan Toronto in January 1960.
