Just in time for the sunshine and warm weather, I have found one of the most unique spots in the city. Sugar Beach is a sweet sanctuary in an otherwise industrial part of the city (Lower Jarvis St. and Queens Quay Blvd., right next to the Redpath Sugar Factory).
This week, my son and I made a visit to Sugar Beach and we spotted pretty pink umbrellas, fine white sand, candy stripe boulders, and a playful water fountain. Take a look at our snapshots:
On the morning we visited, there were very few people at the Beach. It was quiet and serene, and the water fountains drowned out the sound of street traffic. Parking might be tricky (we parked at the Loblaws across the street, but only because we planned on grocery shopping after the fun). The TTC does have a conveniently located bus stop right in front of Loblaws.
Notice the Corus Entertainment building? It sits right along side Sugar Beach!
Have you been to Sugar Beach? What do you think of taking an industrial (and somewhat isolated) area and transforming it in to a pedestrian-friendly recreation spot?
