Welcome to the Summer Hub

Click the links below for information to help residents navigate the busy summer season!

Beach capacity updates:

Visit these Twitter feeds for information about capacity and conditions at popular beaches in The County. These Twitter feeds are managed by the individual beaches and the municipality cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information. For Sandbanks and North Beach Provincial Parks, it’s best to check their reservation system for up-to-date availability of day use permits. For Little Bluff and Wellington Rotary Beach, if there are no recent Twitter updates, this generally means there is space available at the beach.
