ST. GEORGE – Work is progressing on the Canal Beach Revitalization Project at the popular public beach located on Lake Utopia, approximately 5 km north of the Town of St. George.

In addition to a new canteen building with 2 exterior washrooms and outdoor shower, a new parking area will be developed and the installation of several park features will be added. The old canteen building will be repurposed as a storage and maintenance shed.

Canal Beach has been a popular public beach area for over 40 years and operates from June to September. The beach is one of only a few fresh water public beaches in southwestern New Brunswick. The beach and boat ramp area are made possible through a land use partnership between the Town of St. George and JD Irving Ltd.
