Outdoor Swimming

Change houses are located at Shallow Bay (saltwater), Lomond (saltwater), and Trout River Pond (freshwater) for unsupervised swimming. There are outdoor showers at Lomond. Caution should be exercised when swimming in the ocean due to currents and low water temperature. Swimming off the beach at the mouth of Western Brook can be dangerous and is not recommended.
