Sunset Beach (Municipal)


This is St. Catharines' largest beach, offering 1,200 feet of sandy beach area. The beach is located just off of the Waterfront Trail where you can also walk, run, and bike. The Welland Canal is also nearby. The beach's former name is "Municipal Beach", and locals also refer to it as "Garden". In August 2015 city council approved the request to change the name of the beach to Sunset Beach. It is indeed the perfect place to watch the sun go down on Lake Ontario.
