Legion Park

Marmora, Ontario

Legion Park is at the corner of Cameron and Matthew St. in Marmora. The town's name is latin for "marble" and was chosen because of a giant white marble rock that once stood near Crowe Lake. The beach here is part of the Crowe River. The Crowe River is a long river and gets its water from 2000 square kilometres of land. The Crowe River begins in Haliburton County and flows all the way to Lake Ontario after joining up with the Trent River in Northumberland.

SOURCE INFORMATION

The Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit samples beaches weekly from Victoria Day to Labour Day. When the information is posted on the HPECHU website, Lake Ontario Waterkeeper updates Swim Guide.

Ontario beaches are monitored according to the province's Beach Management Protocol. The Protocol says that authorities must check water quality at least weekly from June 1 to Labour Day at beaches where there are formal swimming programs or lifeguards. Most municipalities do not actually begin sampling until mid June. Beaches in Ontario are posted when the geometric mean of 5 samples collected within a 30-day period exceeds 100 E. coli / 100 ml of water.

A Ministry of the Environment procedure says that a clean beach is open at least 95% of the swimming season, even if it is near a sewage pipe. This rule applies to every place that is public, accessible, and feels like a good place to swim. When all else fails, the Ontario Environmental Protection Act strongly states that no one can interfere with the use that you can make of a public waterway - like swimming!
