Another beautiful park located on the South side of Lakeshore Blvd. in Etobicoke is the Marie Curtis Park. It’s probably best known among families with small children for its playground area and splash area. There is more to this beautiful park than just the playground, however.
The main attraction for families is the large children’s play area with a playground, a wading pool and a supervised beach (July and August). All you need is to bring a lunch, some blankets and towels and enjoy a scenic waterfront picnic while your kids are happily splashing away or burning energy on the playground or surrounding fields.
Situated along the scenic Etobicoke Creek, Marie Curtis Park features many perfect picnic spots for a weekend barbecue with friends or family.
If you feel more ambitious, the Etobicoke Creek Trail will take you along a sight-seeing route of the creek until Horner Avenue (1.8km). There are opportunities for bird watching and spying of marsh nests of various water birds. The trail is paved, so it is bike / rollerblade / stroller friendly.
Marie Curtis park is easily reachable by public transit, as it is a short 5-minute walk from the Long Branch GO station, also a stop for Mississauga Transit buses, the 501 streetcar and various Etobicoke buses. Cars enter the parking lot from 42nd street South of Lakeshore Blvd West or across Etobicoke Creek from Lakeshore Road East.
