The Scarborough Bluffs

One of Canada’s natural wonders

A 15 km escarpment that stretches the eastern waterfront of Toronto, the beautiful Bluffs rise 90 metres above Lake Ontario. There are nine parks along the Bluffs, including Bluffer’s Park, home to Toronto’s floating homes. Bluffer’s Park is also home to a Blue Flag beach making it safe to swim.

The cliffs were formed over 12,000 years ago from the accumulation of sediment. Today, despite challenges of erosion, they remain home to many rare species of fish, birds and other wildlife who seek refuge from the city. You’ll find Trumpeter Swans at your deck every morning. And there is no shortage of walking trails through the park, where you’ll see turtles, frogs, beavers, foxes and even deer and mink if you look closely enough.
