Innisfil beaches remain closed; number of resident-only parking lots increased

Cookstown splash pad close to opening

While the province has said beaches can open as of today (June 12) they remain closed in the Town of Innisfil.

“We are working very hard to reopen our beaches so residents can enjoy them,” said Mayor Lynn Dollin. “Since COVID-19 arrived in our community, residents have done an incredible job following public health guidelines. We ask for their patience as we put plans in place to continue to keep our community safe so we don’t undo our progress.”

The town is working to ensure proper signage, physical distance markers and enforcement are in place to safely reopen outdoor spaces and amenities.

A target date of June 20 has been set for beaches to reopen.

The splash pad at 20 Church Street in Cookstown will reopen as soon as possible pending consultation with partners at the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.

In addition, town council has increased the number of resident-only parking lots.

They include:

  • 9th Line Road End
  • 10th Line Park
  • 12th/Mapleview Line Park and Lot
  • 30th Sideroad North Road End and Dock
  • Guest Road Lot
  • Shore Acres (Neilly Road Lot)
