The Town of Georgina’s three major waterfront parks – Willow Beach, Holmes Point and De La Salle Beach and Park – are open with restrictions. While today marks the lifting of the stay-at-home order, at this time, parking lots continue to be available to resident pass holders only as further data is collected on how to manage the parks safely. In line with the province’s Roadmap to Reopen plan, the Town will reassess the parking when the province enters step one of the roadmap. Parking lots at Bonnie Park and North Gwillimbury Park are also by resident permit pass only.
In order to limit crowds at these locations, available parking spaces have been reduced. Once parking lots reach capacity, the parking lots will be closed. Residents are required to display their 2021 resident parking pass to park in the lots. For those who have yet to obtain one, 2020 passes will be accepted. Parking passes are available online at georgina.ca/ParkingPass.
The beaches and parks are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily with Town staff on site to monitor and control the number of users permitted in the parks. On weekends, police officers are on site to monitor and support Town staff where needed, and assist with traffic control. The Town is also be patrolling other waterfront areas and increased staff will be supporting municipal law enforcement officers.
Everyone is reminded to use the waterfront parks at your own risk. Please visit georgina.ca/beaches to see guidelines on how to use the beach safely, and what is permitted. Failure to follow health and safety guidelines could result in the beaches and parks being closed.
