Marie Curtis Park East Beach


Marie Curtis Park East Beach is located on the east bank of the Etobicoke Creek where the water flows out to meet Lake Ontario. The park was once part of a community called Long Branch. Hurricane Hazel struck in 1954, destroying forty homes and claiming six lives on the beach. In order to ensure that this never happened again, the remaining houses were moved away from the shore. The area was designated parkland. The Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto erected a plaque in the southwest corner of the park to commemorate Marie Curtis, the woman from Long Branch who worked tirelessly to have the park built. Children love the park playground, and there is ample space and greenery for everyone to use and appreciate. Marie Curtis Park Beach is a beautiful place to enjoy the sun and quiet near Toronto.
