Published on: 2016/08/02 - in Featured News

Notices have been posted by KFL&A Public Health at Lake Ontario Park’s boat-launch and cobble beaches that indicate swimming in those waters is not currently recommended.

That status is shared by beaches at Breakwater Park and Reddendale & Crerar in the City, and Bath Filtration and Centennial Beach in Loyalist Township. All other beaches are presently considered “open” by Public Health.

UPDATE: On August 3rd, the City posted: “Attention, Kingston swimmers: it’s okay to swim at Breakwater Park.  KFL&A Public Health is now listing the park as “open” on its beach listing website.

KFL&A Public Health continues to monitor conditions and provides updates as they become available.

Beaches being monitored include those in Central Frontenac, City of Kingston, Frontenac Islands, Loyalist Township, North Frontenac, South Frontenac, and Stone Mills.
