Muskoka Lakes Confirms Facility & Beach Safety

MUSKOKA LAKES – The Township of Muskoka Lakes would like to notify the public that staff are aware of the Towns of Bracebridge and Gravenhurst finding dangerous materials in the sand of several public beaches, and as result Township staff are being more vigilant in their inspections of public facilities, including public beaches.

“The Township of Muskoka Lakes has not received any threats of any kind nor have we seen any suspicious behaviour in and around any of our facilities and public beaches”, says Roger Young, Director of Public Works. “All Township of Muskoka Lakes public facilities and beach areas are open to the public as the Victoria Day long weekend approaches.”  

“The Township of Muskoka Lakes number one priority is to ensure the health and safety of residents and visitors at all public facilities and beach areas,” says Roger Young, Director of Public Works. “Staff will continue to take proactive steps to be more vigilant when inspecting public facilities and beach areas.”

The OPP will continue to apprise area municipalities of any additional information obtained in relation to the investigation. Members of the community are asked to report any suspicious activity or acts of vandalism to the OPP or should you wish to remain anonymous you may report to Crime Stoppers.
