Beach and Swimming Locations

There are many public places throughout Georgina to enjoy Lake Simcoe. Plan your day and visit one of the Town’s waterfront parks or Sibbald Point Provincial Park in Jackson’s Point. You can also make a splash at three waterfront resorts.

Beach parking

Parking lots are available to both resident parking pass holders and visitors. The three major waterfront parks (De La Salle, Willow Beach and Holmes Point) have parking lots for both those with resident parking passes and visitors. Residents must have a 2022 resident parking pass to park for free in the resident parking lot. All other parking lots will be available to those with passes and those without on a first-come-first-serve basis. For those without a pass, pay-and-display machines are operating. To apply for a parking pass, visit georgina.ca/ParkingPass
