Once the site of the bustling Lakeland Lodge, one of the more popular sandbanks tourist lodges that thrived during the latter part of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this green and shaded site along the shores of Lake Ontario is perfect for picnics away from the crowds on nearby Outlet Beach.

Featuring interpretive plaques funded with the help of the Friends of Sandbanks, visitors can get an idea of what the area was like since it was cleared for the MacDonald Farm in the early 1800's, and the subsequent Lakeland Lodge later in the century.
