The Beaches

The Beaches (or “The Beach”) is a neighbourhood located in the east of “Old” Toronto City. The Beaches is bounded by Victoria Park Avenue to the east, Lake Ontario to the south, Woodbine Avenue to the west and Kingston Road to the north.

The area features four different beaches; Scarborough, Kew, Balmy and Woodbine. Queen Street East’s commercial district runs through the heart of The Beaches. The area consists of a large number of specialty stores and the streets are mainly lined with semi-detached Victorian, Edwardian and contemporary homes. There are also a few low-rise apartment buildings and row houses. The Beach itself is a continuous long stretch of sandy shoreline bounded by Woodbine Park to the west and the R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant to the east. The boardwalk that runs along The Beach is also a popular place for cyclists, joggers and dog walkers. The Beaches is one of Toronto’s great neighbourhoods for raising a family with a good variety of parks and schools.
