The long weekend is upon us and with a bit of luck we will get some sunshine! August long is one of the busiest times of year for Alberta’s beaches and before you make weekend plans, be sure to confirm that your destination is free of water quality advisories – there’s no greater disappointment than making big plans with friends only to find that you’ve travelled all that way and can’t have fun in the water.
Check out our Swim Guide website or app to find out whether a beach near you has an advisory or see the list below to learn which beaches in Alberta are currently under an Alberta Health Services advisory.
Swim Guide is developed by Swim Drink Fish Canada, a close partner of the North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper.
