Toronto Beaches Are Reopening On June 5!

We are so fortunate here in Toronto to have many beautiful beaches to choose from. With lots of room to dig, play, and swim, a stretch of sand or cobble is the perfect place to take the kids!

Weekend temperatures are expected to soar, so the timing is perfect ― the City of Toronto has just announced that beaches will be reopening this Saturday, June 5. The City has issued a reminder that you should only swim where Lifeguard supervision is offered and in designated areas.

Families can enjoy a picnic or some beach volleyball, and of course, take a swim but only if a Blue Flag is shown, meaning that the beach meets high standards for water quality and safety. Water at supervised beaches are regularly tested for E.coli bacteria and you can check beach water quality here.

Anyone planning on going to the beach should do the Ontario Ministry of Health self-assessment for COVID-19, and if you don't pass the assessment, you should not use the beach. Social distancing is required at all times. Provincial orders currently restrict gatherings of more than 10 people who are not members of the same household. Limit your contact with people you don’t live with and keep a distance of a least two metres apart.

Have fun and stay stafe at Toronto beaches this summer. You can learn all about Safety at beaches here. Remember to also keep things clean and pick up your litter when you leave!
