Please be advised that the openings of three Parks of the St. Lawrence Beach & Day Use previously estimated for this weekend (June 3, 2023) have been further delayed, due to the health and safety risks posed by significant damage from the ice event last month.
The following Beach & Day Use Areas remain closed:
- Crysler Park Beach (13480 County Road 2, Morrisburg)
- Mille Roches Beach and Picnic Area (15805 Long Sault Parkway, Long Sault)
- Woodlands Beach and Picnic Area (15174 Long Sault Parkway, Ingleside)
The SLPC forestry team has been working diligently to prioritize the reopening of areas affected by the storm, which included many campgrounds in addition to the beaches. The team is actively assessing and working on all affected sites, however, the volume of clean up to be done and soft and wet ground conditions earlier this month have made it challenging to complete.
As the safety and well-being of our valued guests is our top priority, the above-cited areas will remain closed until the necessary tree damage is cleared. Opening dates will be posted on our website once determined.
We understand the disappointment this may cause, as we share in the excitement for the summer season. Until these areas are open, guests can enjoy alternate Parks of the St. Lawrence Beach & Day Use Areas.
The following Beach & Day Use Areas are currently open Saturdays & Sundays and will open daily beginning June 24:
- Brown’s Bay Beach (1259 Thousand Islands Parkway, Mallorytown) with restrictions and modified amenities during construction completion
- Farran Park Campground & Day Use Beach (14704 County Road 2, Ingleside)
- Glengarry Beach (20800 Service Road South, Lancaster)
Please be assured that we are working diligently to resolve the issues and ensure that the beaches are ready for visitors as soon as possible. We will continue to provide updates on the situation and look forward to welcoming you to the beaches in the near future.
