A broad and beautiful curve of sand at the foot of Woodbine Avenue, this popular 15.2-hectare park is one of the city's many beaches and the gateway to three kilometres of sandy waterfront stretching eastward along the Lake Ontario shoreline. Woodbine Beach is a popular spot for picnics, sunbathing and swimming with wide stretches of sand, summer lifeguards, a bathing station and the Donald D. Summerville Outdoor Olympic Pool nearby. The recently renovated bathing station features upgraded ventilation and lighting, a new roof, an enlarged patio, change rooms, accessible washrooms, water bottle filling stations and a beach shower with a foot wash. The Ashbridges Bay and Martin Goodman trails run through this park, which also includes a playground, outdoor fitness equipment, beach volleyball courts, picnic shelters, snack bar, full-service restaurant and parking at Ashbridges Bay Park.
Accessibility: A beach wheelchair can be rented for free by calling 311 and picked-up at the Donald D. Summerville Outdoor Pool. Note: Due to large, smooth tires, wheelchairs can’t be pushed manually and require a support person.
This beach has expanded mesh plastic mats reaching all the way to the water’s edge.
