Ashbridge’s Bay Park
According to the City of Toronto, “Ashbridge’s Bay Park was named after Sarah Ashbridge, a Quaker widow and United Empire Loyalist from Philadelphia who settled here in 1793 and obtained a Crown land grant in 1799 for a farm.”
Despite the farming origins of this area, the bay and park bearing this name now features expansive beaches, marina, fishing and the Woodbine Beach boardwalk.
Ashbridge’s Bay Park is a true summer paradise considering this description, not to mention the vast area dedicated to beach volleyball and the scenic picnic sites. But there are photos to be made even in winter. During a brisk walk in this park, we were able to take a few photos before our fingers became too cold and numb to press the shutter release button.
