    Cobourg Beach Water Park Delayed Until June 2019

    We regretfully announce that the opening of the floating water park at Cobourg Beach has been postponed until June 2019.

    Both ATL Distributing and Summer Water Sports along with The Town of Cobourg have been working diligently over the past six months preparing for the opening, however the total number of lifeguards required to safely operate the water park could not be procured. We look forward to operating the water park next summer.
