We decided to drive out to take in the Scarborough Bluffs on Sunday. The views are spectacular, as we walked around the walkways, and wandered onto the rocks lining the water. It was a beautiful day! We ended up having lunch at Dogfish Pub, which...More

Cystal clear (very cold) water with lucious scenes of greenery. Lots of barbeque stands set up for families. Great experience, definitely will visit again. :)

My experience here was vastly different than all these reviews I read. First of all, don't even bother trying to get there without a car. I took the TTC and had to walk half an hour to even get to the park "entrance" which had...More

Such a beautiful escarpment, and scenery. Great for a picnic or just a stroll. Or if you are so inclined a hike. I had a great time and enjoyed my walk through the bluffs. There is also a small beach which is perfect for both...More

A small beach surrounded by beautiful bluff cliffs and trees where you can relax and unwind, right in the corner of the crowded city. There is a bit of walking on some bumpy paths (about 5-8 min) from the paid parking area to the beach...More

Very beautiful to see. However it was very difficult to find parking. We came there late Saturday afternoon and drove around for quite some time before we could find a spot. The beach is small, but the views are nice. Wished we could have hiked...More

I was visiting my boyfriend in Toronto and we wanted to go see something scenic. We only had a few hours in the afternoon so we decided to visit the bluffs. It was perfect weather and really a reasonable drive from the city. While there...More

Very scenic but a large drive from where we live. We should have tried a non weekend day. Too many people at the one beach area and zero parking. Scenic yes, worth it? Not on a weekend!

This is a portion of waterfront well worth the effort to get to. There are two paid parking lots at the bottom of the hill. If driving a larger unit (ie:truck and trailer) go to the second parking lot. The short walk to the bluffs...More

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

Kingston Road bus from Victoria Park Avenue station will drop you off at Kingston and Brimley - then you need to walk south and then down the hill. A number of buses run on St Clair from Warden Station.

There is no public transit to the Bluffs. The closest bus stop is at Kingston & Brimley Rd. on route #12. Visit ttc web site for bus details. From that stop, you will need to walk about 20 minutes down a steep hill. I... More
