Signage will be clearly posted. Visitors are asked to collect their vehicles well in advance to avoid the inconvenience of being locked in the parking lot overnight. The lots will reopen every day between 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.
  • Parks Canada will increase staff presence at key locations, including Rouge Beach, and strengthen the enforcement of illegal parking, including ticketing and towing where signage indicates. This is to avoid traffic jams, ensure the safety of residents, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, and allow safe access to emergency vehicles.
