A Dog-Friendly Playground on the Beach
I like to call the Toronto Beaches "the happiest place on the planet." Dogs and beaches naturally go together.
Map of 5 km LoopMy typical route is a 5 km loop that begins on the Neville Park Blvd. The street is a dead-end with a staircase to the beach.
As you continue, you'll come to a fenced-in dog park along the lake. This is known as Kew Gardens Dog Park. It's one of the better dog parks I've seen in terms of size, terrain - sand, lake, and trees, and cleanliness.
Although you can continue walking much further, I usually turn north at Kew Beach and walk along Queen Street back to my car. There are a few places to stop for a snack along the way, and Queen Street is dog-friendly with an opportunity for your dog to get used to walking on sidewalks with lots of shops, people, and dogs.
