Marie Curtis Park

In the farthest southwest corner of Toronto you will find Marie Curtis Park. This Park is a great destination for a day of fun with family and friends. It's named after the Longbranch Reeve (a small village Mayor) Marie Curtis and is one of the few beaches in North America named after a female community leader. This park was created in the late 1950's to help control flooding after Hurricane Hazel nearly swept local homes in the area out into Lake Ontario. Throughout this park you can find an abundance of wildlife and native plants. There is a playground, wading pool, a public swimming beach, a dog off-leash area, picnic spots and walking trails including a connection to the Waterfront Trail. You will always find something to do at Marie Curtis Park.
