Sunset-Beach-St-Catharines

St. Catharines beaches, including Sunset and Lakeside Beach, will close from dusk until 8am.

This decision follows a series of incidents at local beaches, including one from this past weekend where five people were sprayed with bear mace and three more people were assaulted.

In a release, the city says crews will undertake drive by inspections to make sure closures are being following.
