– VISITING THE BEACHFRONT –
Planning a visit to the beachfront? There are a few things you should know:
- The “beach” is not owned or operated by the Town of Wasaga Beach. The beach is in fact owned and operated by the Government of Ontario. The beach is managed by Ontario Parks and is part of Wasaga Beach Provincial Park. The provincial park, including its beachfront property, is open for public use.
- You can learn more about the beach and the rest of the provincial park by visiting the Wasaga Beach Provincial Park website.
- The town offers municipal parking near the main beachfront (Beach Area 1) but parking in these lots is at 50 percent capacity. The Spruce Street lot is reserved for residential parking pass holders.
- The sand-covered portion of Beach Drive is open. This is municipal property. We have four pods established on this makeshift beach to ensure physical distancing and appropriate capacity. These pods are the fenced off areas that beachfront visitors will see.
- After Labour Day, the pods are only staffed on weekends, weather permitting. Staff ensure physical distancing in the pods and ask visitors to self-screen for COVID-19 before entering. Visitors can still use the pods on weekdays but staff will not be on hand to monitor the space. Weekday pod visitors must still self-screen for COVID and observe physical distancing. Learn more here. See our parking lot map here. For general information on parking see here.
- Please note the pods will be dismantled at the end of September.
- Remember to respect physical distancing and all other provincial orders that apply. Masks must be worn inside public spaces per the Simcoe-Muskoka District Health Unit.
