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".

Cherry Beach is a Blue Flag beach. The Blue Flag is awarded to beaches and marinas that meet strict standards for water quality, environmental management and education, safety and services.

The Humber River is important to me because I grew up by Humber and I spent a lot of time there. For me, living in the suburbs of Rexdale, the Humber was this wild place where you could just be who you wanted to be with your friends.
