Rouge Beach


The Rouge River winds its way through the largest urban park in North America and meets the waters of Lake Ontario at Rouge Beach. Near the beach is a marsh that provides a home for a variety of wildlife. Any time of the year, the picturesque scenery around Rouge Beach is calming and impressive. During the summer many people spend their days fishing and swimming off of the shores of the beach and watching the trains on the CN line drone past them in the distance. Rouge Beach is near Toronto’s only camping ground and is a great spot for city dwellers to access large green space for hiking, biking and running, among many other outdoor activities. Immediately to the east of the beach you can't help but notice the Pickering Nuclear Power Plant, one of the largest nuclear power plants in the world.
