imageimageThis is probably Canada's best example of urbeachism in urban architecture.

Open space away from tall buildings or trees. Extends the months of summer into September and part of October (by which time an ocean or lake beach would be too cold).

Dark granite slabs with nonslip surface (not slippery when wet) cover most of the one-acre urbeach space. The urbeach is free of clutter. The open space allows natural sunlight to warm the granite surface, without being shaded by buildings or trees. The raw granite, heated by the unshaded sun, together with cool refreshing water, is a wonderful juxtaposition of opposites.
