The pandemic situation changes daily.  You can do your part by staying home whenever possible, practicing social distancing (stay 6.5 feet away from others) and washing your hands and sanitizing surfaces frequently. 

Beaches, Shoreline Parks and Boat Launches

At this time, there is a Public Health Order in place which keeps our beaches, and parks beside a shore, CLOSED-this includes Sauble Beach and Bluewater Park.  Boat launches are open including the Bluewater Park boat launch.  Bluewater Park remains closed.  By-Law enforcement is patrolling and will ticket anyone who is in a closed area.  We thank you for being respectful of the Order and our enforcement officers.

Beginning Tuesday, May 12, 2020, the South Bruce Peninsula Landfill Site will be reopening to the public.  The landfill site will be open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday from 8:30am – 12:00 noon and 1:00pm – 5:00pm.  The only acceptable payment methods will be debit β€œtap” or Town charge account for contractors.
