When visiting a beach pilot site this summer, please be mindful of the following guidance:

  • Don’t bring glass to the beach – broken glass can cause injury to yourself and others
  • Respect other beach users – be mindful of the personal space of others and keep music and noise to an appropriate volume
  • Properly dispose of trash in a nearby waste bin or take it away with you
  • Avoid entering the water with alcohol or if intoxicated

In support of the program, visitors can expect to see more Park Rangers on hand to provide support and guidance, as well as added waste bins and recycling stations. […]
