Canada's Sugar Beach




Once a parking lot, Sugar Beach is the latest project in the revitalization of the Toronto Waterfront.

Canada's Sugar Beach is like three parks in one and includes a plaza, an urban beach and a tree-lined promenade. Quartz has been added to the sand, creating a sparkling sugar crystal effect. The sugar theme continues with candy stripes on the large granite rocks with the added touch of pink umbrellas. The tree-lined promenade that runs diagonally through the park and connects to the Water's Edge Promenade includes a granite maple leaf water feature, where people can cool off next to the beach.

Visitors can relax in the white Muskoka chairs which also provide a perfect vantage point from which to watch the boats on the lake and the freighters arriving from faraway places, loaded with raw cane sugar, to make their deliveries to the Redpath Sugar Refinery.

Located just east of Lower Jarvis Street and south of Queens Quay Boulevard (next to the Redpath Sugar Refinery), Canada's Sugar Beach is now part of a unique new urban space that has transformed a lakefront parking lot and underused area into a waterfront attraction! Torontonians and visitors now have the chance to enjoy part of the lakefront that they have not had access to in the past.

Together, the promenade and boardwalk which will stretch almost a kilometre from end to end, providing uninterrupted public access along the harbour.
