Trout Lake becomes latest Vancouver beach to close for swimming
Today, Vancouver Coastal Health notified folks that Trout Lake in Vancouver has been closed for swimming at wading due to elevated E. coli levels. Trout Lake follows in the footsteps of Sunset Beach, which was closed for the same reason over the weekend.
So, make sure that if you’re heading to either of these beaches you resist the urge to dive in. It’s never a good time to get E. coli or an illness, but this summer warrants an extra dash of safety.

And besides, there are still tons of beaches around Vancouver that are open for swimming. We suggest maybe getting out of the city or further out West if possible, but we trust the city to keep us updated. Actually, you can check the water quality at Vancouver’s beaches right here.
With tests happening frequently, it’s easier than ever to plan an impromptu beach trip with friends or family. So have fun and stay smart during these last few weeks of summer, folks!
