Vancouver Park Board announced Saturday afternoon that Kitsilano Beach is now closed to swimming due to high E. coli levels.
Earlier this month, Sunset Beach and Trout Lake, as well as Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver and Snug Cove on Bowen Island, were all closed to swimming due to E. coli. Sunset and Ambleside beaches have subsequently re-opened, however, advisories remain in effect for Trout Lake and Snug Cove.
Kits Beach has been closed to swimming due to high E.coli levels. #VancouverCoastalHealth provides water quality reports and has advised of the latest sample counts. Visit https://t.co/j1IfzCmvRH… for details and respect signage placed at the beach. @VCHhealthcare
