    The family came to this beach because we had about an hour and a half to kill. There is paid parking right beside but you can also find some free parking across the street along some side streets. If you have lots of gear or small children I would recommend using the paid parking.

    There are a lot of amenities close by like washrooms with separate change areas, restaurants, and ice cream across the street to name a few. There are also separate areas off the beach for volleyball and other activities, plenty of greenspace for picnics and such.

    The beach itself is great with areas for sun and shade. There is also a small playground on the beach. There are 2 zip lines; one along the sand and one off the pier into the water. The water is very shallow and goes quite a ways. As a result, the waves created by boats passing doesn't effect as much so great for kids. There is also a shower area for body and feet which is great to wash off the sand.

    Even though we were there for a short time we enjoyed our time there and liked all the amenities there.

    Nice little park. Great views of the lake and the city from the beach and park. Really nice picnic spots and playgrounds. Definitely will be back again.

    If you want a happenin vibe and a party atmosphere, don't come here. Strathcona Beach is a smallish park tucked away in a residential area such that the tourists and party hounds don't know about it. And that's just the way the locals want it. Mostly families and couples taking up some grassy space or laying on the nice sand beach. A children's playground and washroom facilities round out the amenities... and a small parking lot. It's also good to know that the water stays relatively shallow for a fair distance... safer for little ones and the water is warmer because of it. And of course, if you get injured and need medical assistance, the hospital is right behind your back. 4 stars.

    The family and I spent all day at this beach. There are washrooms at this location and a taco food truck during the time we were there. Across the street were condos and houses so not a lot of other things around. Parking is paid.

    What we liked was that the beach was very close by to the parking with a little green space. We saw lots of people set up blankets on the beach or grass. We found a nice spot under a tree and were able to get shade for a bit before the sun moved onto us. We did bring an umbrella so that was good.

    The beach was clean and the water was warmish and very shallow for quite a ways. Out of our time here, the kids spent the most time in the water and even tried to build some sand castles. There is also a beach rental where you can rent paddleboards and paddle boats.

    The only issue I had was the washrooms were disgusting; doesn't look like it gets cleaned very often and there was no place to change like on other beaches.
