SwimTO is a quick-start program that will expedite the opening of the City’s beaches, outdoor pools, wading pools and splash pads. City staff are preparing now so that outdoor aquatic amenities can be opened when Toronto enters Stage 2, to help people cool down during hot summer temperatures.

As part of the SwimTO plan, lifeguards have returned to 10 of Toronto’s swimming beaches. Lifeguards will supervise each location daily from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. 

The City will provide lifeguard supervision on swimming beaches coupled with comprehensive crowd management.

Beaches that are currently open with lifeguard supervision:

  • Bluffer’s Park Beach (Blue Flag)
  • Centre Island Beach
  • Cherry/Clarke Beach (Blue Flag)
  • Gibraltar Beach
  • Hanlans Point Beach
  • Kew-Balmy Beach (Blue Flag)
  • Marie Curtis Park East Beach  
  • Sunnyside Beach
  • Wards Island Beach
  • Woodbine Beach (Blue Flag)

Beach water quality testing and analysis will be completed by Toronto Public Health to ensure people can swim safely at Toronto beaches.
