Some City beaches closed until August 7 for storm cleanup

Wilkins Park, Dock Road and Tyndale Park & Beach will be closed until Friday, August 7 for rainstorm cleanup.

City crews have been out since early morning on Tuesday, August 4 cleaning up from the weekend’s rainstorm. There is active construction at Wilkins Park, Dock Road and Tyndale Park & Beach, and residents are asked to avoid these areas until the City deems them safe for public use.

The storm caused some damage at these beaches due to erosion from the rain, and City crews are actively on-site transporting materials to these areas to control the water flow.

City crews are also inspecting the rest of the beaches and parks across the City for potential damages and will communicate any other closures.
