Sugar Beach

Sugar Beach

Sugar Beach is an urban beach park in Toronto, Canada, that opened in 2010. It is located across from Redpath Sugar Refinery in Toronto's eastern East Bayfront. Like HTO Park to the west, the beach is not meant to allow wading or swimming in Lake Ontario, but rather functions as a waterfront public space for relaxation, leisure, and social activities. It cost $14 million.

The park is designed by Claude Cormier + Associés Inc. It features a sandy beach with ornamental lighting, umbrellas, Muskoka chairs, rocky amphitheatre and candy trim, and pedestrian areas paved with granite setts in three colours arranged in a stylized maple leaf motif.

Since 2011, the beach has been the setting for the Toronto Port Authority's Sail-In Cinema event, with an inflatable movie screen mounted on a custom-built barge approximately 50 metres south of the beach.

    What a unique spot! We stopped at it today to relax after visiting the Camp Ooch BBQ by the LCBO warehouse. It created a lot of controversy when built due to the cost, but it is always busy. The sand was specially chosen so it would not blow away...and even seems to have some special 'sparkle' to it as if mimicking the sugar it is named after.
