11:11:11 @ 11:11 Sugar Beach (est. 2010) near Redpath Refinery

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Sugar Beach is a whimsical new park (2010), in a former industrial area. Now Toronto’s second urban beach at the water’s edge. Located near the Redpath Sugar Factory, the park’s brightly coloured pink beach umbrellas are welcoming visitors to the new waterfront neighbourhood of East Bayfront. This was my first time on this beach! I wish it was warmer!

There is similar beach (no swimming) with yellow umbrellas, but the photos I made there in the past, where not good enough for this gallery.

The condo construction is in full swing!

The design - by Claude Cormier Architectes Paysagistes.

There is no pool, in fact signs are everywhere, that Swimming is not allowed!

It is better then parking lot, but people are not used to it yet, so it is not used much!

I took photos from about 9:30 to 12:00 am. I did not know where I end up at 11:00, but then I remember this new park near the lake.

My first visit there!

Hola Tomas.

Me encanta, y además vacía, como a mí me gusta :-).

Menos personas, más libertad :-).


Un beso,
