It’s summertime in the city: Toronto’s beaches are officially opening this weekend.
While you can visit any of Toronto’s 11 beaches at any time, their official opening on Saturday, June 4 means that they will be maintained and that lifeguards will be on duty.
From June 4 through to September, lifeguard supervision and beach maintenance will run daily from 10:30 am to 7:30 pm.
Beach facilities, like washrooms, will operate under the same hours.

The City of Toronto recommends swimming only when a lifeguard is on duty. Before you take a dip, be sure to look for the Blue Flag, which indicates high standards for water quality and environment management.
You can check beach water quality on the city’s website starting in June.
