The community in The Beaches area in Toronto started in 1793 and has a long and vibrant history. It started when the area was divided into lots by Alexander Aitken for Lieutenant Governor John Simcoe and the new owners, or their heirs, developed roads and settlements. As the villages grew, some owners fashioned recreational areas, which they often opened to the local population. Word spread and by the 1870's The Beaches became the summer resort for the residents of Toronto. As these small villages grew into Towns the City of Toronto eventually incorporated them into the City framework. In 1910 to 1920, the local governments began to buy the land that many of the private and commercial recreational areas occupied. Property purchases and renovation work progressed slowly, but in 1932 the Beaches Park opened and there has been no looking back, as growth and development in this area has continued.
Now, it is one of the most sought-after areas in the city and a place where locals and tourists alike, flock to for a relaxing evening walk, some good entertainment or just to look out on the serene waterfront. This website offers you the chance to stay up-to-date on events and other news that may be happening at your Toronto Beaches!
