Visitor information - Location
Mimico Cruising Club has been in operation since 1978. We are located on a 22 acre site on the landfill project known as Humber Bay Park West. This project, initiated by the Metropolitan Toronto and Regional Conservation Authority during the 1970's, envisaged a lakeside peninsula that would be a public park with lagoons, wildlife, launching ramps, parking and a protected harbour. A sailing school, Mimico Cruising Club and Etobicoke Yacht Club share the harbour formed by the peninsula.
Directions on the water
We are located at the west end of Humber Bay, just West of downtown Toronto (bay chart). The entrance to the harbour is located at 43°36.6 North and 79°29.0 West. Once inside the harbour proper, Mimico is at the east end of the harbour (harbour chart) 43°37.08 North and 79°28.78 West. Our neighbour, Etobicoke Yacht Club is at the southwest end of the harbour.
Directions on land
The Club is located at 200 Humber Bay Park Road West, Toronto, Ontario, M8V 3X7. As our Club gate works with a pass, you are advised to pre-arrange entry with the member you are visiting. If, however, you arrive at the gate without means of entry, there is an intercom you can use to get instructions from a staff member, assuming you are arriving at a time when staff is on duty.
From the West From the 427 or the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW), head east. After the 427 merges onto the Gardiner Expressway, keep right to stay in the collector lanes. Take the Park Lawn exit until it ends at a traffic light on Park Lawn Road. Turn right, then right again at the light onto Lake Shore Boulevard, and then take the first left into Humber Bay Park West. We are the second driveway on the right.
From the East Cross downtown on the Gardiner Expressway until you are well past the Exhibition grounds. Eventually you will see two exits close to each other. The first is South Kingsway and the second is Lake Shore. Take the Lake Shore exit and turn right onto Lake Shore Boulevard West at the end of the ramp. Go past two traffic lights (the second is Park Lawn Road) and take the next left into Humber Bay Park West. We are the second driveway on the right.
