Waverly Beach Park


Situated in the remnants of Erie Beach Park, a defunct amusement park that was open from 1885-1930, Old Lake Erie Beach Park offers the opportunity to walk through some of Canada’s history. You can see what remains of the promenade, the dance hall, and the “world’s largest swimming pool” as you walk alongside the park on Friendship Trail.

Waverly Beach offers shady trees as well as cool lake waters on a hot summer's day. You can sit on the benches here and look across Lake Erie to the Buffalo skyline. Just to the east, Lake Erie flows into the Niagara River. This area was once a very popular destination for American tourists. The casino, amusement park, and "world's biggest swimming pool" are long gone, but you may spot some reminders as you explore the waterfront.
