Bluffer's Beach is a Blue Flag Beach for the 2020 season*.
Named for the Scarborough Bluffs that tower over it, Bluffer's Park Beach has a ton of facilities for every beach-goer. There are marina, parkland, swimming, fishing, and picnic areas. In 2009, an 11-year-old boy reeled in a 35lb Chinook Salmon just off the beach! Bluffer's Park was built by fill and bringing in sand to create a flat space at the bottom of the clay cliffs. These towering bluffs are loose and crumbly, so keep your eyes peeled for falling sand. If you put your ear right up to the wall of them you might be able to hear the sand and dirt-moving and shifting inside. Bluffer's Beach used to have some of the poorest water quality in Toronto. After a 2006 study by Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and investment from the City of Toronto, the water quality improved dramatically.
