Government Press Release: Basin Head wharf and beach are temporarily closed for safety reasons
Conditions in the channel at Basin Head Provincial Park have changed during the winter season. At this time it is extremely dangerous to jump or dive off the bridge or pier. To do so could cause serious injury or death.
The channel became shallow after a major storm caused it to fill with sand this winter. Measurements put the low water mark at approximately three feet and the high water at approximately eight feet, making the channel half the depth it typically would be. Even at high tide it is still extremely unsafe to jump or dive off the bridge or pier.
While preparing for dredging the channel, bridge engineers noted structural damage beneath the wharf and deemed it currently unsafe for public access.
Barricades are in place to prevent pedestrian access to the wharf and beach.
Located off route 16, east of the town of Souris. Basin Head is a day use park featuring a supervised white sand beach, play area, food on site, washroom and shower facilities. The park also features a mobi-mat that will allow access from the wharf to the water. The park is home to the Basin Head Fisheries Museum and is located in Points East Coastal Drive touring region.
