The Beach

About The Beach

Also known as “The Beaches,” this relaxed neighbourhood with a small-town vibe is a top summer destination, drawing families and tourists to its sandy beaches and quaint boardwalk. The Beach has drawn Torontonians east since the 1800’s when it boasted an amusement park and cottages. Fast forward to 2015 and the Queen Street East Strip and the Boardwalk pair up to provide the best of both worlds – great shopping and dining alongside one of Toronto’s most beautiful nature walks. Queen Street East features colourful indie shops, intimate bistros and hip bars, along with homey bakeries and ice cream parlours. Kew Gardens park offers skating and tennis, and hosts The Beaches International Jazz Festival.

The side streets are mostly lined with semi-detached and large-scale Victorian, Edwardian and new-style houses. There are also low-rise apartment buildings and a few row-houses. Controversy has risen in recent years over new development in the neighbourhood that is changing the traditional aesthetic, with denser housing causing some residents to protect the traditional cottage-like appearance of the homes with heritage designations for some streets. There is an extensive park system along the Waterfront (with Kew Gardens being the only one that extends up to Queen Street) as well as a parks that follow a ravine (partially buried) that bisects the neighbourhood from North to South at Glen Manor Road. When it comes to beach community charm this neighbourhood does not disappoint.
