Small section of Lakeside Park Beach unavailable

A small part of Lakeside Park Beach remains unavailable while restoration work is completed now that the record-breaking high water levels of Lake Ontario have receded. 

The City has sectioned off a 30-metre-by-20-metre area on the west side of Lakeside Park Beach where three large trees were felled and pieces of debris have been unearthed by the receding high lake levels. City staff estimate that 90 per cent of Lakeside Park Beach is still available for residents to enjoy.

The City has removed the wood and debris and continues its work redistributing the sand and grooming the affected area of beach.

Beach maintenance issues can be reported to Citizens First at 905.688.5600.


Located in Port Dalhousie Ward, Lakeside Park offers1,500 feet of sandy beach, picnic area, carousel, concessions, playground equipment, dressing rooms, washrooms and parking area, pavilion, Waterfront Trail and Port Dalhousie Harbour Walkway. This park is 5.3 hectares.

  • Sunset Beach will be used temporarily to host beach volleyball rentals made originally for Lakeside Park.
  • The existing volleyball courts at Sunset Beach will be used and up to six temporary, portable nets will be added at Sunset Beach as needed by permit holders.
  • The temporary nets at Sunset Beach will be put up and taken down only for permitted bookings. The temporary nets will not be in place overnight.
  • Groups will be relocated back to Lakeside Beach once it is safe to do so.
