Toronto Island Park remains closed as water levels continue to rise
In the interest of the public safety of residents, visitors and City of Toronto staff, Toronto Island Park remains closed to the general public due to rising water levels.
This spring, Toronto experienced high levels of rainfall and as a result, Lake Ontario and watershed levels throughout the city continue to rise. The City has been working closely with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority to monitor Lake Ontario water levels, which are expected to rise, even without further rainfall, for several more weeks. Even at the current levels, experts advise it will likely take several weeks for the water to subside.
