Welcome to The Beaches
One of the most visited and sought after areas in Toronto is The Beaches, or “The Beach.” Once a pre-war cottage destination, this waterside neighbourhood is a beautiful and fun place to live. The outdoor space is incredible, with sprawling parkland, biking and walking trails, and of course, the beach itself.
What it's like
Scenery and recreation. Go shopping, stop for ice cream, strap on rollerblades, and go for a swim. Or, sit and watch the water, or the people, with a cool drink in hand. Everything you want from a city and a beach community is all in one place. For commuters, streetcar and bus routes run along all major streets.
Are a close community of people. Real estate in the Beach is popular with working-age people and families with children. The majority of residents are between ages of 30 and 64, and there is a high population of children and young teens.
The sense of community. The lake views and recreation are spectacular, but the best thing about The Beach is the laid-back community. Bike riding clubs, beach volleyball, tennis, lawn bowling, playgrounds, and a skateboarding park are some of the ways people in the Beach enjoy getting to know their area and their neighbours.
