Hanlan's Point (Toronto Islands)

Hanlan Point is now known for being one of Canada's only recognized nude (or "clothing optional" as the kids like to say) beaches, but this wasn't always the case. From 1897 to the 1930's, it was home to the Hanlan Point Amusement Park, and of course Hanlan Point Stadium. What made Hanlan Point Stadium worth mentioning? Ever wonder where Babe Ruth hit his first home run? On September 5th, 1914, the 19 year-old rookie cracked his first homer out of Hanlan Point Stadium. A plaque can be found commemorating the event, the place, and the era.
