Beaches remain open, sans lifeguards

A sure sign of the pending demise of the summer season is the deluge of back-to-school ads that appear this time of year.
Another is news that lifeguard service at municipal beaches has ended. That day arrived last Sunday, after which lifeguard stations sat ‘officially’ empty, although they no doubt remain a popular perch for a variety of reasons.
Beaches that are now unsupervised are Centennial and Johnson, as well as Minet’s Point Park, Tyndale beach, and Wilkin’s beach. The Heritage Park splash pad is similarly devoid of lifeguards.
These popular destinations remain open and those in attendance are encouraged to play smart, while parents are reminded to watch over their charges.
