Humber Bay Park is a beautiful recreational area consisting of three smaller contiguous parks located on the shore of Lake Ontario southwest of downtown Toronto. East Humber Bay Park and West Humber Bay Park are on two spits of land straddling the outflow of Mimico Creek. Humber Bay Shores Park stretches farther west along the shore of Lake Ontario toward downtown Toronto. The overall park spans about 2 kilometres of the lakeshore, but its actual waterfront and trail network is far longer.
Humber Bay Park Trails and Bridges
With numerous walking and cycling paths in the park, including the main Humber Bay Park West and Humber Bay Park East Trail, the park is popular with locals who like to enjoy the great outdoors.
Sections of the trail are joined by two bridges where they cross the water. One is a small bridge of unique design spanning Mimico Creek and joining East and West Humber Bay Park. The second bridge is the locally renowned Humber Bay Arch Bridge, which crosses the outflow of the Humber River connecting Humber Bay Park East Trail with Martin Goodman Trail. This striking bridge is 430 feet long and 70 feet tall. It is located at the eastern end of Humber Bay Shores Park.
The Martin Goodman Trail, in turn, connects with the Waterfront Trail that runs along the harbourfront of downtown Toronto and is eventually going to extend along the entire north shore of Lake Ontario.
As you can see, there’s no limit on how far one can walk or cycle, as you can continue beyond the park in either direction for many kilometres.
Over 5 million cubic metres of lake fill were used to create the park, which opened in the summer of 1984. Ongoing projects include restoring natural habitat by planting shrubs and trees, establishing meadows filled with lovely wildflowers and creating butterfly habitat, wetlands, and fish habitat.
Amenities include the walking and cycling trails, picnic areas, a playground and beachfront. There’s a swimming pool, a ball diamond, tennis and basketball courts and, in the winter, an ice rink. There’s also a pond for fly casting and a wheelchair accessible fishing pier. The west park features a historic lighthouse. In addition to the above, Humber Bay Park provides spectacular views toward Downtown Toronto making this an outstanding area to visit on a nice day.

Ratedout of 5
Humber Bay Park East is a wonderful destination with so much to offer! The abundance of condos and restaurants nearby makes it a vibrant and convenient location. We appreciated the ample parking available, ensuring a stress-free visit. The park's dog-friendly atmosphere allowed our furry friends to join in on the fun. The Air India memorial serves as a poignant reminder of history. The boardwalk is a fantastic addition, providing a scenic stroll with an incredible view of downtown. However, it's disheartening to encounter the occasional appalling cannabis smell near the bushes, and some pet owners not picking up after their dogs. Additionally, witnessing people littering with empty bottles and cigarette stubs was unfortunate. Despite these minor downsides, Humber Bay Park East remains a must-visit spot for its overall beauty and attractions

Beautiful Park - A True Jewel of Toronto I came here during Victoria Weekend for a visit. Despite the construction going on I felt it still deserved a 5-star. Visited both East and West part. I liked better the east since I could capture best view of Toronto's skyline as well as Lake Ontario. My mother enjoyed it especially the 2 big swans swimming around. We almost gave up since there was almost no parking (better come early).
