COVID-19 Waterfront Parking and Boat Launch Program

Waterfront Parking and Boat Launch program 

If you’re planning to visit the City of Orillia this summer, please note that there are COVID-19 restrictions in place at our beaches, waterfront parks and boat launches in order to help manage overcrowding and keep everyone safe.

As part of the COVID-19 Waterfront Parking and Boat Launch program, until Sept. 12, 2021, on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, visitors to Orillia will have to pay a $50 flat rate per day to park their vehicle at waterfront parks and $50 to launch their boats. Boat launch permits can be purchased at both the Couchiching Beach and Collins Drive boat launches.

Parking and launching a boat are free for everyone regardless of residency from Monday to Thursday, with the exception of Canada Day (July 1), the Civic Holiday (Aug. 2) and Labour Day (Sept. 6).  

See You On The Patio

Patio Permit and Animation Applications Now Open 

Launched in 2020, the See You on the Patio program is a City-wide initiative that provides Orillia businesses and residents a safe way to dine outside while adhering to COVID-19 guidelines.

The See You on the Patio program also features live performances, street closures, late night shopping, and more. For more information on how to participate as an artist or a venue host click here.

If you are a business looking to install a temporary patio it is important to note that all temporary patios within the City of Orillia require municipal approval. Applicants may request approval for patios on private property through the Seasonal Patio Program Application
