Lifeguards remain on duty at Centennial Beach until Aug. 23

City lifeguards will be on duty at Centennial Beach until Friday, Aug. 23 after city council voted in favour of extending their stay.
At Monday’s council meeting, councillors approved a motion to extend the guarded beach season at Centennial. Lifeguards will be on duty at Johnson’s Beach until Sunday, Aug. 18 as originally planned. Lifeguards are on duty 11:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. daily, weather permitting.
The buoy lines will remain in the water at both beaches until after Labour Day weekend and will be removed Tuesday, Sept. 4.
The City and the Canadian Red Cross teamed up once again to offer the PFD Loan Service. So far this year, more than 250 people have participated in the program, which allows beach-goers to borrow personal flotation devices for free at Centennial Beach and Johnson’s Beach to help ensure water safety.
