City Plans To Have Canoe Beach Back Open This Week

Shuswap Lake is receding, and Salmon Arm's Canoe Beach is nearly back in action.

The beach has been closed since June 8th, but Mayor Nancy Cooper says the closure wont last much longer "It sounds like the beach is going to be open by the end of the week."

The Mayor says that Public Works crews have plenty of work to do "They have a lot of debris to clean up, there's a lot of driftwood, sticks, logs and everything on the beach, and up on the grass. They're going to have to get down there with a chainsaw, because some of those pieces are pretty big."

This is great news for those behind a number of upcoming events at Canoe Beach, including a celebration on Canada Day.
