Toronto beaches officially to open this weekend

The official start of summer is about two weeks away, but one of the surest signs that the warm weather is here to stay is the official opening of Toronto beaches. Nine beaches are set to open in Toronto on June 6th, which means that water quality will be monitored and lifeguards installed, even if the lake is too cold to enjoyably swim right now (the temperature is about 10 Celsius right now).

The following beaches will open this weekend in Toronto.

  • Bluffer's Beach
  • Centre Island Beach
  • Cherry Beach
  • Gibraltar Point Beach
  • Hanlan's Point Beach
  • Kew-Balmy Beach
  • Ward's Island Beach
  • Woodbine Beach

That's nine of Toronto's 11 beaches. The remaining two, Marie Curtis and Rouge Beach will open on June 19th and 23rd, respectively.
