This must be one of the best beaches in Canada. We must have walked 5 kms north along the beach and enjoyed our selves immensely. Worth the drive from Georgetown.

This park has all the amenities to spend a fun-filled day with family and friends. A great beach to relax and enjoy the sand talk to you. You can also be adventurous and jump off a bridge and let current take you out to sea.

Even with high winds, the air temperature was just chilly for our September 4th visit. Not very many people this visit but we had fun trying not to be sandblasted and blown off the pier. Lunch was good.
