Kits Beach remains as Vancouver’s lone waterway that’s closed due to high E. Coli counts

Closed on July 27, Kits Beach remains the lone swimming area in Vancouver that’s off limits to swimmers.  

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 earlier this month.

Snug Cove is the only other body of water that remains closed out of that initial slew of advisories.
