Rouge Beach closed to halt rapid shore erosion

Starting the week of May 24, Parks Canada will put in place a temporary full closure of Rouge Beach to allow for remediation work due to increased shoreline erosion and rising water levels.

The two factors have combined to create unstable terrain and strong currents that pose risks to visitors, said a Parks Canada statement.

It said it is endeavoring to keep the Waterfront Trail open to the public, even though the beach itself will not be accessible.

Visitors are asked to respect all signage and closures to support visitor safety and to prevent any further erosion. “Parks Canada appreciates the public’s cooperation and support as we work to mitigate and remediate the effects of erosion and high water levels.”

For the most up-to-date information, including updated closure timelines as they become available, visit the Important Bulletins page of the Rouge National Urban Park website.
