Season Over - Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion

This is the side of the Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion facing out onto the beach and Lake Ontario, now all closed for the season with boats from rowing clubs stored under the arches. In summer there is a cafe under the arches and outside along behind the fence which is beside the boardwalk. It's still a nice place for a stroll now if the weather isn't too windy but no sunbathers are to be found on the beach!

I bet it's a busy place in summer.

This really is a beautiful place. It reminds me of days past and even looks like it could be used as a movie set for a period piece.

It's a pity they close it during winter, I think it's a very nice place to visit. ;-)

I have a an older brother and he told Sunnyside was the place for young people to hang out in the summertime.

Wow - You can just see this place in the 1920s and 30s, what a symbol of a different time.

Such a super building Pat, in my imagination I can imagine the scene here when it was first built in the 1920 's , it would have been the place to be seen I bet..
