Oakfield Beach Reopens for Swimming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that Oakfield Beach at Grand Lake has reopened for swimming.

Oakfield is a supervised beach. Municipal staff regularly test the water quality at all supervised and four unsupervised municipal beaches during the summer months.

Previous test results showed high bacteria levels in the water, but follow-up tests now show the water is once again safe, as per Health Canada guidelines.
