Waverly

Fort Erie, Ontario

Waverly Beach offers shady trees as well as cool lake waters on a hot summer's day. You can sit on the benches here and look across Lake Erie to the Buffalo skyline. Just to the east, Lake Erie flows into the Niagara River. This area was once a very popular destination for American tourists. The casino, amusement park, and "world's biggest swimming pool" are long gone, but you may spot some reminders as you explore the waterfront.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is essential right now. Follow the advice of the health experts. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Heading to the beach should only be considered an option if social distancing practices can be followed. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter the efforts to curb the virus’ spread.

For more information, please visit the World Health Organization public resource on COVID-19.
