The Beaches

The Beaches is located to the East of Toronto’s downtown, stretching from Coxwell east to Victoria Park. The lakefront is divided into four communities; Woodbine Beach, Kew Beach, Scarboro Beach, and Balmy Beach. Its proximity to downtown Toronto and many great schools makes it the perfect home for many professionals and families.

The Beaches looks and feels more like a lakeside resort town, than a big city neighbourhood. During the summer months, you will see thousands of Torontonians and tourists walking on The Boardwalk, jogging along the Martin Goodman Trail, soaking up the sun by the water, or dining at restaurants along Queen Street East.
