Such a pretty park to take a stroll, have a picnic or swim on beautiful Lake Nipissing. Very clean well groomed beach. Beautiful gardens and landscaping, very well maintained. The rock retaining wall along the waterfront is truly picturesque with all the cute miniature Inuksuks people have built. We will return for a swim next visit.

Beautiful. Golden beach . Great vibe in the summer and you can rent kayaks! There is also a lovely boardwalk that has lots of historical information and gorgeous foliage and flowers growing along it.

Visited mid August 2021. The beach was clean & litter free. Lovely forested views. Few ppl enjoying the astonishingly warm waters during a heat wave.

The beach and gardens are a wonderful attraction in the summer and fall. The flower gardens are beautifully maintained by volunteers. There is a rental spot for kayaking and eying ice cream. The beach itself has an accessibility ramp and play ground. Sometimes the beach, itself, can be a little dirty. We usually do a climb through before picking a spot.

This beach has everything to offer the family as the water is not deep so kids can swim with ease. The Pier is beside the beach to walk on or go fishing. They also have a large play structure for the young kids when they are done swimming in the surf. My family loves this beach.

This beach is great for any age, including families with kids. The new playground is excellent for children and has a full range of activities. There are washrooms with sinks, and a potable water station to fill water bottles. There is a grassy park area beside the beach. The Boat restaurant is a leisurely 5-min walk. The dock and marina are right in this area as well so there are opportunities for walking close by the beach. Amazing sunsets almost every right year around, though walking is best is spring, summer and fall.
I highly recommend the waterfront area of North Bay, which included Marathon Beach.

Located just off Memorial Drive the beach is just north of the pier and marina. Limited parking, but you can find spots across the road.

The beach has fine sand and slopes very gradually down to the water, where it is a very easy entry into the water.

At the back of the beach they have a huge playground, with benches to sit and watch your kids.

What a lovely treasure in North Bay, my family (husband/2 teens) really enjoyed taking a stroll along the boardwalk, seeing all of the boats and admiring the views from the beach. Water is very clean, and beach is as well and not overly crowded. Great backdrop for pictures/selfies. Chip truck in the parking lot, what else could you ask for on a lovely summer evening.

We had some time to pass till our next game and decided to visit the beach which i thought was beautiful.. although no one was swimming (it was a roaster day) the water was clean and the sand was sand clean and soft....

we got to see the ferry and hear the horn on it and it was nice like in a movie... the boardwalk was clean and close to the water and had plenty of benches along it so you can sit at any time.

A beautiful area for swimming walking and having a picnic. The boardwalk has many amazing flower arrangements and the sunsets are just like in the Caribbean Ocean.
