kids playing at the beachKawartha Lakes – As summer heats up and more of us are looking to cool off, please keep in mind beaches are open but physical distancing of two meters (six feet) must be maintained at all times and groups of more than 10 are prohibited. While we remain in a state of emergency, service levels are reduced and Garnet Graham Beach Park (Fenelon Falls), Bobcaygeon Beach and Omemee Beach are receiving limited maintenance.

If you’re going to the beach, please first check the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit’s Beach Water Test Results to ensure the water is safe to swim, as well as read their Beach Safety tips.

Splash pads and their associated washrooms are also open at Garnet Graham Beach Park, Tommy Anderson Park (Bobcaygeon) and Elgin Park (Lindsay). Additionally, boat launches are open across the municipality.

Kawartha Lakes continues to take all necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of residents and staff. Expect an increased presence of local law enforcement as restrictions are gradually lifted. Services will be monitored closely and restrictions or closures could be reinstated if the municipality sees an increase in risk.

Staying Connected
The municipality continues to post updates to www.kawarthalakes.ca/COVID19. Visit the webpage for the latest updates on closures, meeting cancellations and changes to services.
