Where to Visit in Collingwood when Travelling with Family

One of the many joys of travelling is being able to bring everyone together. If you're travelling with your family this Spring, Sunset Point Park in Collingwood is a must-visit! With a pebble beach, picnic areas, lookout points, seasonal fries and ice cream, and a large playground, there's something for the whole family to enjoy.

Sunset Point Beach in Collingwood is located only a 10-15 minute drive from our vacation rentals in The Blue Mountains, just past the Downtown core of Collingwood. There are several paid parking lots along the waterfront, right beside the playground, food vendors, and washrooms. 

There is pebble beach access at Sunset Point that is swimmable. It is important to note if swimming here that the area is not lifeguard protected, so always ensure little ones are supervised. Additionally, we recommend water shoes/aqua socks if swimming here as it is not a sand beach. With these things in mind, Sunset Point Beach is a wonderful alternative to the busier beach areas nearby, and does not have a deep drop off. 

Just moments from the pebble beach is the local landmark, the Inukshuk. Traditionally constructed by the Inuit, inuksuit (plural) are integral to Inuit culture and are often intertwined with representations of Canada and the North. This landmark is large and impressive to experience in person. Plus, a fun activity enjoyed by many who visit is to use the rocks beneath to recreate a miniature inukshuk along the rock wall. 

While admiring the crashing waves of Georgian Bay, you might even encounter some of the local swans cruising along the shore! We encountered some right behind the Inukshuk. 

After a stroll along the waterfront and a picnic at one of the many available lunch areas, the Sunset Point Playground awaits your little ones! This park has been around for over 20 years, and just recently (2022) was completely remodelled! This playground includes lots of interactive elements and themed structures, and was designed with inclusivity and accessibility in mind.

This park is loved by locals and visitors and has been a staple attraction in the Georgian Bay area for decades. Whether you're there to swim, walk, play, or enjoy lunch, Sunset Point has something for everyone to enjoy.
