Paid Parking and Sauble Beach

Sauble Beach is a beautiful place to visit, relax and enjoy the sun, sand and surf.  The Sauble Beach By-Law is in place to ensure that everyone enjoys their time on Sauble Beach.

Maintaining the Beach is costly.  Council has implemented a Paid Parking Program to assist in off-setting the costs of Beach maintenance.

Below you will find information regarding the Sauble Beach By-Law and the Paid Parking Program.


Sauble Beach By-Law

The Sauble Beach By-Law regulates when dogs can be on the Beach and prohibits things like bar-b-ques, vehicles, camping, fires, offering items for sale and tents.  By-Law Enforcement Officers are on the Beach to enforce the by-law.  Please approach an Officer with any questions you may have.  You may call Town Hall at 519-534-1400 with concerns or to ask questions. 

Dogs are prohibited from being on the Beach between June 1 and Labour Day.  From Labour Day to May 31, dogs may be on the Beach but you must still be in care and control of the dog, the dog must be leashed and you must clean up after the dog.


Parking Enforcement at Sauble Beach

By-Law Enforcement Officers are enforcing the Traffic and Paid Parking By-Laws at Sauble Beach.  Please be sure that you angle park where required, do not park in loading zones, fire routes, no parking areas and accessible parking spaces.  Also be aware of parking spaces where there is a time limit for parking.  Please ensure that you pay for parking in the paid parking areas.
