Lake Ontario water levels are high and will to continue to rise. Easterly winds also direct waves onshore.  These have the potential to cause damage along the shoreline.

Residents are asked to stay away from the waterfront around Lake Ontario particularly parks and trails.

City staff have closed off access to Marina Park public boat launch, St. Lawrence Park and Jack Darling Park where the water has washed over some of the pathways, as well as the Lakeshore Road pedestrian underpass.

City staff, together with the Credit Valley Conservation Authority are actively monitoring the waterfront areas as well as weather conditions should further action be required.
