Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Balmy Beach (Toronto)

Family Tested
High energy


Balmy Beach is located just east of Kew Beach and more secluded. It includes a snack bar with tables overlooking the beach. There's a cute playground amidst tall trees in the adjacent little park. (You’ll see what seems like a rental place for canoes but the building belongs to private Balmy Beach Club.) It is worth walking on the beach further east, where the boardwalk ends. That's where you can sneak into the backyards of some great properties.

There's an off-leash dog park east of the boardwalk visited by very happy dogs who can run wild or jump into the water.

Some houses have horizon pools!
