Bayfront directions: From HWY 403, exit on to Main Street. Turn left on Bay Street. A few blocks farther is Bayfront Park; turn left, park, and walk the walkway along the train track.
Whitby Harbour: From HWY 401, once in Whitby, exit on Brock and head south. The harbour is one minute drive away, on your right. Walk along the walkway for hundreds of birds.
