Where are the Port Lands?

The Port Lands is an area that extends southeast of Toronto’s downtown core into Lake Ontario and includes over 715 acres of land along the waterfront. Some familiar landmarks include: Cherry Beach, Tommy Thompson Park—one of the best bird watching spots in the city—and of course the Hearn Generating Station, an iconic, decommissioned electrical plant.

Looking at the map below, you can see that the Port Lands is bounded by the Keating Channel and Lake Shore Boulevard in the north, the Toronto inner harbour in the west, Ashbridges Bay in the east and Lake Ontario and Tommy Thompson Park in the south.
