Dinolfo Announces Extended Swimming Hours at Ontario Beach Park

Dinolfo Announces Extended Swimming Hours at Ontario Beach Park

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced that hours for public swimming at Ontario Beach Park will be extended for Thursday, July 21st and Friday, July 22nd due to the high heat and humidity.

“With the weather continuing to climb into elevated levels of heat and humidity, we are continuing our extended hours of public swimming at Ontario Beach Park for today and tomorrow to better accommodate residents looking to escape the heat,” said Dinolfo. “On hot days like today, it is important to slow down, stay hydrated, apply sunscreen frequently, check on neighbors and find a place to cool-off -- such as in the refreshing waters of Ontario Beach Park.”

Lifeguards will remain on duty and public swimming will be allowed to continue at Ontario Beach Park for one extra hour, until 8:00 p.m. for both days, as long as conditions, including adequate daylight and water quality, are favorable. Normal hours for public swimming are from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., daily through Labor Day. Swimming is only allowed at Ontario Beach Park when lifeguards are on duty.

A recorded telephone message is updated daily at (585) 753-5887 with information on beach conditions and whether swimming is permitted or not.
