Amos Waites Park -- The Lakeside Parks of South Etobicoke III

Amos Waites Park is a charming waterfront park located right at the foot of Mimico Ave. on the south side of Lake Shore Blvd.

It is connected to the waterfront bike and pedestrian trail and has a new and terrific playground for the kids. It is also blessed with some truly lovely views of the lake, a small island made by the city, and a nearby marina.

With some excellent nearby coffee shops and restaurants (such as Maurya which is one of Toronto's best roti joints and which is literally less than a minute walk from Amos Waites) and lots of benches, picnic tables and rocks to sit on, it is also a perfect spot to enjoy a drink or meal outdoors.
