On the West End of Toronto, on the shores of Lake Ontario, is a lakefront district that was the "bee's knees" in the 1950s. Although it no longer has the amusement park that made this area hopping back in the day, it does have a beach and park area around Ontario's Humber Bay. The waters of Humber Bay are popular for boating and dragon boating clubs are a popular past time with Torontonians. The Sunnyside Bike Park opened in 2014 and provides a space for legal dirt biking. There is also a popular public pool for suntanning in the summer months. The water quality of swimming in the lake is improving, passing water quality tests 3 out of 4 days. Sunnyside Cafe offers the opportunity for cold drinks and greasy food, which is what we all crave after a satisfying day outside.

- Outdoor Activities: "This is accessible by TTC: take the 501 streetcar and get off at Parkside. You could also combine this with a trip to High Park if you wear your walking shoes."
- Best for Outdoor Activities Because: Easy access right on the Lakeshore to view a more innocent period of history. There are enough remnants to keep the good times rolling outside.
