Municipal Public Beaches

There are three (3) municipally owned beaches in Trent Lakes. All are unsupervised.

Pets are not permitted on any of the beach areas or associated parklands. Please leave your pets safe and comfortable at your home or cottage.

Peterborough Public Health samples the water at the public beaches during the swimming season (June to August) and posts the results on their website Beach Testing Results page, or you can call 705-743-1000 for information. Peterborough Public Helath samples all the beaches once a week with the exception of White’s Beach which is sampled at least once in June, July and August.

Sandy Beach
Location: A. Shearer Park, Lakehurst Road (County Road 37)

Sandy Beach is located on Lakehurst Road (County Road 37) and is the most popular beach in our area due to its warm shallow water, sandy bottom, pretty blue merle colour and grassy parkland. The park has undergone improvements with a barrier free walkway, designated handicapped parking area, and a load and unload zone for families or paddlers. A large parking lot leads to a convenient off road walkway through the park to the beach area. There are plans for continued improvements to this park to make it even more enjoyable.

Crowe’s Line Beach
Location: Down Crowe’s Line Road off County Road 36

This is a small unsupervised pebble beach in a natural setting located at the end of Crowe’s Line in the vicinity of the bridge. It is located on Pigeon Lake.

White’s Beach
This is a small unsupervised sand beach in a natural setting off Clearview Drive.
