Cherry Beach

Beach

Cherry Beach is a Blue Flag Beach for the 2022 season*.

Cherry Beach has a diverse and colourful place in the history of Toronto. The 1980’s pop hit “Cherry Beach Express” tells tales of illegal and corrupt adventures on the sands. The City of Toronto has spent years improving Cherry Beach as part of the Waterfront Redevelopment Project. Today, Cherry Beach is a safe, friendly, wonderful place for kite-surfing, swimming, walking, and BBQs. It is host to the music festival “Promise Cherry Beach” every summer weekend. There is an off-leash dog park here. Cherry Beach is mostly sandy and is usually one of the cleanest beaches in mainland Toronto. It is sometimes called "Clarke Beach".

*A Blue Flag beach is one that meets strict water quality and safety criteria. These beaches are certified annually as being clean, accessible, eco-friendly, and having great water quality! Swim Drink Fish is the National Operator for Blue Flag in Canada.
