One of the great things about life in North Bay is that it's situated right between Lake Nipissing and Trout Lake, and that means lots of sandy beaches. There are a total of 43 beach access areas in North Bay! Three of these beaches are supervised. Supervised beaches are Shabogesic Beach on Lake Nipissing at the Waterfront, the Birchaven Cove and Olmsted Beach on Trout Lake.
So make sure you bring your bathing suit and sunscreen when you visit us. For more information about local beaches please contact the Arts, Culture and Recreation department at (705)474-0626 ext. 2329 or 2335.
Swimming Lessons have been cancelled for the Summer of 2023
Each summer lifeguards are on duty at three of our local beaches. During the times that they are on duty, the lifeguards are responsible for the water area within the buoy lines. Anyone swimming outside of the buoy lines is doing so at their own risk.
The lifeguards are also responsible to ensure that the Parks Bylaw is followed within the beach park area. They will educate the public as to the Parks bylaw. This include- no dogs/pets in the beach area; no alcohol consumption in the park.
