Woodbine Beach volleyball courts are underwater

Ashbridge's Bay

Lake Ontario’s rising water levels have caused flooding and erosion on Woodbine Beach. These conditions, along with a series of intense rain storms and gusting winds forcing waves further onto the beach than they’ve been in decades, has enabled broad ponds to develop on the beach, drowning out nearby volleyball courts and stranding a set of Muskoka chairs. Nearly a third of Woodbine Beach’s volleyball courts are underwater and over 100-metres of beach have been lost in some parts of Ashbridges Bay.
