Woodbine Beach is a Blue Flag Beach for the 2019 season*.

Woodbine Beach is the most westerly stretch of sand in Toronto’s Beaches (er, “The Beach”) community. It curls the shore from Ashbridges Park to Kew Beach with a boardwalk running alongside the entire way. That wasn’t always the case. Until Lake Shore Avenue was extended to Woodbine in the 1950s, this shoreline was known as “The Cut”. It was a dark wooded area, far from the rest of the city and fancied by rum runners and their friends. Today, Woodbine Beach is the city’s hotspot for beach volleyball. Ashbridges Bay is just to the west.

*A Blue Flag beach is one that meets strict water quality and safety criteria. These beaches are certified annually as being clean, accessible, eco-friendly, and having great water quality! Swim Drink Fish is the National Operator for Blue Flag in Canada.

Lake Ontario is important to me because most of my memories from different things we’ve done there, like surfing and stand-up paddle-boarding.
