Partial Emergency Closure at Rouge Beach to Address Rapid Shoreline Erosion
Parks Canada has implemented a partial emergency closure at Rouge Beach in order to protect the public and mitigate the effects of rapid shoreline erosion.
In recent weeks, significant erosion of the Rouge Beach shoreline has occurred due to the emergence of a sandbank blocking the flow of the Rouge River into Lake Ontario. This has resulted in the loss of some of the beach area, and erosion of the shoreline in areas that present a significant risk to the environment, visitor safety and public infrastructure.
Effective Thursday, May 12, Parks Canada will put in a place a temporary and partial closure of the beach area near the mouth of the Rouge River as a matter of public safety and to prevent further erosion. A full beach and Waterfront Trail area closure is expected once remediation work gets underway. Parks Canada is asking for the cooperation of the public to exercise caution and refrain from swimming as terrain is unstable and currents are strong and unpredictable. Paddlers should also avoid the area near the mouth of the Rouge River.
