    Humber Bay Park West
    • 1 Recommendations

Part of a network of small peninsulas stretching out into Lake Ontario, Humber Bay Park West is a beautiful spot on the city's waterfront. The rocky beach is not monitored for recreational water quality by the city of Toronto. Humber Bay is a very popular scuba diving site, especially with beginners. Trails behind the beach make for a good walking and bicycle route. This side of Humber Park is home to a few boating clubs and docks, which means it has slightly less green space than its Eastern counterpart.

Although a variety of recreational activities takes place in the water here, water quality at Humber Bay Park is currently unmonitored by the City of Toronto. Water quality concerns at this site are tied to its close proximity to the Humber Wastewater Treatment Plant. A small group of trained citizen scientists is undertaking weekly sampling for E. Coli until the end of August 2019. Information and results of sampling will be posted here until the last week of August 2019. After this period, recreational water users are advised to be cautious as E. coli bacteria can cause health problems in humans and pets.

I have often found myself swimming at Cherry Beach on weeknights and weekends. I have enjoyed beautiful calm water on Saturday mornings and witnessed four-foot waves as storms were approaching.
