  • Coronation Park
  • All sports fields
  • Bronte Harbour - nightly closure from 8 p.m. - 6 a.m.

Residents are reminded to use caution around creeks, ponds and the lake as possible shoreline erosion can make for slippery and extremely dangerous conditions. Areas that are taped or fenced off have been deemed potentially unsafe and we ask that residents please respect these closures so that no one gets hurt.

If water threatens to flood structures or roadways, please contact ServiceOakville at 905-845-6601 or
