Colonel Samuel Smith Park located in the western Ontario Lake region of Toronto is a favorite destination of ours for Wildlife Photography of Waterfowl and Shore Birds.
Formerly a part of Lieutenant Colonel Samuel Smith's property - this land was created into an urban recreational and park region in the late 1970's. The Park was officially opened in 1996.
Home to sandy and rocky beaches, this has been a great spot for us to see select marsh, shore and duck like birds as well as swallows, and, various evergreen loving bird species. Especially busy during the migration season in the spring, and during the summer for nesting bird pairs.
A favorite with dog lovers too (beaches), joggers, and young parents with strollers.
It is outfitted with washrooms and water fountains (although the washrooms were closed when we visited:(
Accessible by Transit, and with parking for cars, this park offers a view from 13 kilometers distance of the Toronto Skyline, a most impressive view.
