Closures Due to High Lake Levels

Residents are reminded to use caution around creeks, ponds and the lake where localized flooding and shoreline erosion have created dangerous conditions.

Although water levels have started to recede, they remain higher than normal and some areas are still prone to sudden flooding and ponding when heavy rainfall is combined with easterly winds. Areas that are taped or fenced off may be unsafe and we ask that residents please respect the closures so that no one gets hurt.

Staff are inspecting lakeside parks twice daily to assess conditions and will reopen the parks as soon as it is safe to do so.


  • Gairloch Gardens - closed area has been reduced but shoreline access remains closed
  • Dingle Park - trail closed from Allan Street to Trafalgar Road
  • Carrington Promenade - westerly portion
