Woodbine Beach Park is located on Lake Ontario, between Coxwell and Woodbine Avenues. Vehicles can access Woodbine Beach Park from Lakeshore Boulevard East, just east of Coxwell Avenue. Parking is available off Lakeshore at Northern Dancer Blvd. To access Woodbine Beach Park by public transit, take the Queen 501 Streetcar or the Bloor/Danforth subway line and exit at Woodbine Ave. From here, take the Woodbine 92 bus South. The park is only a few minutes walking distance south from the bus stop. Pedestrians and cyclists can reach the park from the Martin Goodman Trail and the Beaches Boardwalk. It is a very popular spot for jogging, picnics and sunbathing, and many common litter items can be found there like cigarette filters, beverage containers, and food wrappers.
