Fort Erie beaches are closed

We recognize there has been some confusion regarding the status of beaches in Fort Erie. To be clear, all Fort Erie beaches are closed for use. This includes: 

  • *Bay Beach (also known as Crystal Beach)
  • *Crystal Beach Waterfront Park
  • Maple Leaf Beach 
  • Bernard Beach 
  • Crescent Beach
  • *Waverly Beach
  • *Bowen Road Waterfront
  • Riverwalk and Freedom

* Beach portion of the park is closed. Greenspace is open for active and passive use, but playground areas and equipment are closed.

Additional signage and barriers will be placed at various locations where applicable. Those found disobeying Town regulations may be subject to fines up to $1,000. A staff report outlining recommended operation changes for Bay Beach will be included in the June 8, 2020, Committee-in-Council agenda.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through this unprecedented time.

    GREAT planning – thank you. We don’t want 5000 people jammed into Bay Beach and the Covid cases escalating two weeks later. We are NOT the USA.
