Now that the weather is hotting up are you looking for somewhere different to go?
I discovered this little gem last summer, it’s a spot I would recommend to spend a day at.You will feel like you have left Toronto, it’s a great place to go to when you are looking for a quiet secluded area along the waterfront.
The Scarborough Bluffs are a significant geological feature resulting from the accumulation of sedimentary deposits over 12,000 years ago. They were formed by the natural processes of wind and water erosion from Lake Ontario.
The Bluffs stretch for about 15 km along the Lake Ontario shore, from the eastern beaches of Toronto in the west, to east point park in the east.
Bluffers park feature spectacular views of the bluffs and lake Ontario, trails, beaches, gardens, sports and BBQ spots! – bring walking shoes if you want to hike.
For those of you who are rom-com fans they also featured in the movie “The F word” – Daniel Radcliffe goes skinny dipping and ends up spending the night in the nip on the shoreline of the bluffs.
Without wheels, getting to the bluffs can be slightly more difficult but still possible and definitely worth the trek!
Via TTC – take a Bloor-Danforth subway east to Victoria Park station. Next, take a 12 or 12B Kingston Rd bus east to the Brimley Rd/Kingston Rd intersection. From there the Scarborough Bluffs are about a 10 minute walk south on Brimley Rd.
I can safely say it is one of my favourite places in TO.
Let us know how you get on and what you think of the bluffs.
