Aylesford Lake beach opened June 14 and is ready for summer swimming.

The municipally owned waterfront park is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, with supervised access from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning June 21.  

Lifeguards at the beach are part of the Nova Scotia Lifeguard Service. The service, operated by the Lifesaving Society, is contracted to provide supervision at 24 Nova Scotia beaches this summer.

Aylesford Lake Beach and Brigadoon Village, both on North River Road, will also be hosting the lifeguard service’s training camp June 22 to 25. More than 70 lifeguards from around the process will be in Kings County training for the summer season and taking the

Lifesaving Society’s National Lifeguard Exam, which ensures they are prepared for their role on the beaches.
