Much needed improvements have made Cherry Beach, Toronto’s cleanest beach, even better
Located at the foot of Cherry Street in the Port Lands, Cherry Beach is one of the city's most remarkable resources. It is known as the cleanest beach in Toronto which means that
swimmers can enjoy the water here for most of the summer. Cherry Beach will eventually become the western arm of Lake Ontario Park, the large regional park planned for the waterfront.
In 2004, Waterfront Toronto undertook work to improve the beach and enable more people to use the beach and surrounding area. Phase one of the improvements to Cherry Beach included new landscaping and the construction of a trail to Cherry Point, an overall clean-up of the area, installing proper restroom facilities and rebuilding the change houses. The beach is also now accessible by public transit. The second phase of improvements included restoration of the life guard station and improved landscaping and lighting for the western and eastern parking lots.
