The park is located on a man-made peninsula, known as the Leslie Street Spit, which extends five km into Lake Ontario and is over 500 hectares in size. The park represents some of the largest existing natural habitat on the Toronto waterfront, encompassing. wildflower meadows, cottonwood forests, coastal marshes, cobble beaches and sand dunes. Wildlife, especially birds, flourish at the park, making it one of the best nature-watching areas in the Greater Toronto Area. Other recreational opportunities include hiking, cycling, rollerblading and fishing.
