Head to Irondequoit Bay Marine Park on a warm Rochester day. Make a day of it and enjoy the playground, beach, pier and Bill Gray’s. There is a sidewalk connecting them all and continued efforts to make the area more pedestrian friendly.

Take Me There
This is a newly built playground at Irondequoit Bay Marine Park opened in 2020 as part of the Ontario Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative. The playground is right behind the Seabreeze Bill Gray’s. There is a small parking lot off of Seabreeze Drive for the playground. However, if this fills up, there is plenty of parking on Culver.
The playground is entirely fenced in. There are three entrances but all are gated. It has a pirate ship vibe with some added cars and a firetruck. The highlight of the playground is the structure with the suspended spinning seats. There are typical swings and adaptive swings here (no straps on the adaptive swings) and lots of opportunity for climbing. The row of springy cars is fun for kids and there are different sections for various age groups. Kids of all ages will enjoy this playground. Restrooms are available inside the nearby Bill Gray’s during open hours.
A free beach is located at the very end of Culver Road at Irondequoit Marine Bay Park. This is a fairly small and laid back beach. There is no lifeguard on duty here but plenty of sand to play in.
The pier can be accessed from the beach and is a fun place to walk and get splashed by the waves. Good fishing can also be found off the pier as well as a lighthouse at the very end!
