The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.

This is one of the amazing places that i have visited by now. The water at beach is crystal clear and there is a park along the beach where we can have a walk and eat along with our friends and family. I loved the place and enjoyed so much here.

It was confusing figuring out how to see the bluffs. The easiest way is via Scarborough crescent park. The bluffs are beautiful and worth the Instagram pic.

The Bluffs is a beautiful spot to visit spot to visit with great views and beaches, trash bins , benches and ice cream. It has also become a spot of controversy due to many not respecting basic safety rules resulting in many rescues due to people falling off the edge or getting stuck while climbing. Breaching fences, disregarding notices re: not climbing close to the edge for selfies is causing problems for all, including first responders. Some areas are being fenced off due to this causing anger and concern for wildlife in the community. The Cliffs can also collapse and have done at times . Please come to Scarborough but travel in a respectful and safe manner. The Bluffs are now frequently patrolled and many fines are being issued for not obeying the safety notices. The weekends bring massive traffic problems and lack of parking and crowding. During the week it is less of an issue.

It was a fun trip to visit the bluffs with my family and friends. We have a good time exploring the beaches and the cliff that oversee the view.

We were staying at a property overlooking the bluffs and wanted to check our the beach we saw off to the side. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed a long walk along the beach taking in the bluffs with all the fall colours was so beautiful. There were long walking / biking paths, hiking paths, and it would be a fabulous place to kayak (although we didn’t bring our with us this time)! So beautiful. Water was clear and although too cold to swim now I would definitely swim there as it looked clean and clear.

It was a really beautiful place to visit. We easily found a parking spot, but it was on a Monday morning, at the end of September, so not many tourists around.
However, I found there was a lot of trash lying around, which is awful, considering there were many empty trash cans.

It’s spectacular but the city needs to give the Scarborough Bluffs high quality attention and add a proper walking path and update it to the glory it deserves.
