Anicinabe Beach

Kenora, Ontario

This sandy beach has washrooms, change rooms, showers, playground, BBQ pit, shelter, small concession and campsites nearby. There are canoe and kayak rentals. You can drive or boat to the beach as there are docking spaces and parking. One of Kenora's official trails, the Rat Portage Urban Trail, meanders through the park and leads you to the City Centre where you can find fine dining, shopping, the Kenora Recreation Centre, with indoor pool and the Lake of the Woods Museum. You can enjoy the many special events held on the Harbourfront and see the extraordinary site of Husky the Muskie, a 40 foot, 2.5 ton pike looking as if it had just jumped out of the Lake of the Woods.

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Anicinabe Beach is sampled weekly from July 1st to August 31st

SOURCE INFORMATION

Northwestern Health Unit samples beaches weekly from mid-May to Labour Day. Beaches in this region have been posted permanently by the health unit, which is why Swim Guide has posted these beaches red.

Ontario beaches are monitored according to the province's Beach Management Protocol. Municipal health authorities monitor most public beaches. Provincial park beaches are monitored by Ontario Parks. The Protocol says that authorities must check water quality at least weekly from June 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!
