Two New Safety Zones At Station Beach In Kincardine

There will be two new safety zones at Station Beach in Kincardine this summer in an effort to┬ákeep swimmers safe, and to retain the beach’s Blue Flag status.

The first will be a No Watercraft Zone. It will be about 400 m south of the south pier.

As well, a large sign will be placed at the south end of the pier advising that it is a No Wake Zone. This will deter boaters and watercraft operators from coming too close to shore at a high speed.

Kincardine’s Director of Parks and Recreation Karen Keiffer says they’ve been working for months on a process to keep the Blue Flag status, including hosting several public meetings.
