Life is about to get a little bit more refreshing at Parc Jean-Drapeau, as Jean-Doré beach is slated to open to the public for the summer as of Saturday, July 11.
The gold-sanded beach, an easy drive from downtown, is implementing new measures and some reduced services due to the ongoing pandemic.
To limit the spread of the virus, Jean-Doré beach is closing certain sectors and services that might be a health risk. Changing rooms will no longer be accessible, and guests are asked to shower and suit up before coming to the beach.
Locker rooms are also inaccessible and beachgoers are being asked to keep their personal belongings with them.
The beach won’t be lending out any equipment or devices throughout the summer.

Jean-Doré beach is open every day from July 11 to September 7 but the beach could close based on the daily weather.
