Marilyn Bell Park

Address: 1095 LAKE SHORE BLVD W Map It

Marilyn Bell Park is located just west of Ontario Place along the lake shore. It is part of a long chain of parks along the western waterfront and includes part of the Martin-Goodman/Waterfront Trail. The Park is named after Marilyn Bell, a local Toronto girl who was the first person to swim across Lake Ontario. She was only sixteen at the time and she made the 52 km swim in 20 hours and 59 minutes. The Park was dedicated to her on the 30th anniversary of her swim in 1984. Marilyn Bell park has a beautiful boardwalk along the lake shore, tennis courts, biking and walking trails and is a lovely spot for a picnic.
