Great place to visit, no matter what season we are in! The walk to the water has great views and lots of places to see birds in the natural environs!

This is a great walking and biking trail for all ages. It's conveniently located, has parking near the Rouge Beach and once you're there you forget you're in a big city. Well maintained and dog friendly. Enjoy !

Simply cool hang out. Great in the summer. Keep kids entertained. And wonderful boardwalk for playing Pokemon GO. Usually host a live band once a week in the summer sponsored by OPG. Need to be early for a parking spot though.

It is a nice trail along the Lake Ontario shores. It is going around the nuclear plant but most of it is close to the water. It has everything, birds, wildlife, nice trees and flowers. A place where you can spend some quality time.

It is one of to do places and I visit there... More

A nice trail along Lake Ontario. It takes hours to walk through. Bring a camera for sure! Good views all four seasons. River, lake, wetland, birds... peaceful hiking place, with benches to have a break.

It was our first visit at this peaceful waterfront trail. Even though it was a Sunday early afternoon but it was quiet and we enjoyed our walk and relaxed on the bench and looked at the water for sometime. We loved the wood sculptures.

each time I go there, I'm disappointed. It's pricey. I have difficulty finding menu items that I might enjoy, However, in saying that, the last time I visited, the steak salas was good (overcooked; but good)

I have used the waterfront trail since its inception and have enjoyed its growth over the years. I typically start at the boardwalk in Pickering or just east of the nuclear plant and go east. Aside from the leg north of the plant, the trail goes along fairly close to the waterfront all the way to the Lynde Marsh in... More
