As of 11:30 a.m. on June 22, lifeguards are on duty at six of Toronto’s swimming beaches.
Lifeguards will supervise swim areas from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily.
With the hot summer weather and extended closure of indoor public spaces, it’s important for Torontonians to have opportunities to cool down outdoors.
Toronto’s beaches have remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Beaches were not closed under Province of Ontario’s Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.
The six swimming beaches opening are:
- Bluffer’s Park Beach (Blue Flag)
- Cherry/Clarke Beach (Blue Flag)
- Kew-Balmy Beach (Blue Flag)
- Marie Curtis Park East Beach
- Sunnyside Beach
- Woodbine Beach (Blue Flag)
The four Toronto Island Park beaches will open for swimming on July 1. Rouge Valley Beach is inaccessible, and a supervised swim program will not operate there this summer.
While visiting a beach or park, residents must practise physical distancing and avoid crowding.
