Beaches are available for public use at your own risk when lifeguards are not on site.
Lifeguard services return to Gondola Point Beach on Monday, June 22. Lifeguards will be in place from noon to 5 pm daily from June 22 to Aug. 28.
The lifeguards are employed by the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, which has a long-standing partnership with the town.
The Aquatic Centre is also planning to offer swimming lessons at Gondola Point, outside of the regular beach hours.
The lifeguards will make regular safety announcements over a bull horn, specifically regarding physical distancing. There will be COVID-19 safety signage onsite, as another reminder to beachgoers.
Gondola Point Beach is the only Quispamsis swimming area with lifeguards this summer. They will not be provided at Meenan’s Cove due to construction work taking place at the beach house and other parts of the property.
Important to remember:
- No person shall carry a lit cigarette, cigar or pipe in any public park or public beach where signs are posted.
