Yea: Beach Water – Nay: Beach Sand

Beach Blanket Bingo
Toronto’s beloved beaches officially opened yesterday for the summer. The opening of the beaches comes as four of our beaches were internationally recognized for fantastic water quality by Environmental Defence: Cherry Beach, Hanlan’s Point Beach, Ward’s Island Beach and Woodbine Beach.
After reading some He Said, She Said, head on down for a walk or a swim… but apparently not both…
Torontoist is quite happy that the water is being taken care of, but has heard many horror stories (also included in the lead article) of syringes and glass shards in the sand. Perhaps the miracle clean water will mend the cuts sustained to your feet? But alas, not all the beaches suffer from this sand issue (and not all the beaches have quality water to swim in.)
