Beaches are now open

It’s finally summer and we are happy to announce that our  
beaches are now open. Lifeguards will be on duty from noon to 7 p.m. every day until August 30, 2020. As we love to see residents enjoying the outdoor space, please continue to observe Ottawa Public Health guidelines
 and look out for our wonderful Park Ambassadors in green who are there to answer any of your questions. Please note that Britannia Beach will remain closed to swimmers and beach goers for riverbed restoration.
Keeping the parks clean
As the greenspace is open for use, just a gentle reminder that we all have a small part to play in keeping the area clean. Please try to take your waste home with you, do not dump household waste in the park, limit your waste footprint and pack food into reusable containers where possible, and please dispose of dog waste in your green bin. By each of us thinking about keeping the spaces litter-free we can all enjoy the beauty that Ottawa has to offer.
Pool openings on the horizon
We’re planning for a gradual opening of our wading pools across the city, starting with the first batch on July 6. We’re are also working to reopen indoor pools and outdoor deep-water pools with modified formats for many of the usual activities, such as swimming lessons and open swims.  Stay tuned for the details.
Summer Camp Fun
Remember, you can register today for fun, safe summer camps from The City of Ottawa.
