As we countdown to summer, the City of Toronto has announced the official reopening dates of its beaches! And while summer is still days away, Toronto’s beaches are reopening this weekend, on June 4.
Reopening the beach means that lifeguards will be available for supervision, and there will be beach maintenance daily from 10:30 am to 7:30 pm.
So get ready for a swim, a picnic, or some beach volleyball!
Generally, Toronto’s beaches are perfect for taking a swim during the hot summer. Be sure to check beach water quality, stay in swim zones and find out how to be safe on the beach.
