COVID-19 Updates: Public Health Restrictions in Place

(April 16, 2021) - The Province of Ontario announced an extension of the State of Emergency & Stay at Home Order extending restrictions including the closure of some outdoor amenities. For complete restrictions see the Provincial webpage.

What's Closed in the parks:

  • Baseball diamonds
  • Soccer fields
  • Tennis courts and table tennis
  • Basketball courts
  • Skate park
  • Outdoor fitness equipment
  • Picnic sites and picnic tables

What's open in the parks:

  • Parks are open for the purposes of walking through or using open amenities.
  • Playgrounds, play structures and equipment. Users must maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from others (other than a person who is a member of the same household, a member of one other household who lives alone, or a caregiver for any member of either household).
  • Off-leash dog park
  • Benches

How do we stay safe while using outdoor recreational amenities?

Everyone using these outdoor recreational amenities is required to physically distance from anyone who is not in their household. This means staying 2 meters or 6 feet away from other people. If you arrive at a park, for example that is crowded, you should wait until there is enough space to physically distance or return at another time.

Users of the Town of Parry Sound’s parks system are reminded that these areas are available for use at your own risk and are not regularly sanitized. An inherent risk of exposure to communicable diseases including COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.

For questions regarding the parks and their use, such as hosting events, please contact the Manager of Parks and Recreation.

Water Quality Testing

Water quality is monitored and tested weekly during the bathing season (July 1 - August 31) at Waubuno Beach to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all patrons at the beach.  Water quality measurements will be posted here as they become available.


Waubuno Beach is located at the end of Prospect Street in Parry Sound, Ontario.  There is ample parking available on site, including accessible parking.

If you prefer to bicycle or walk, you can also access Waubuno Beach from the Rotary and Algonquin Regiment Fitness Trail.
