As of today, we again have access to the Port Perry lagoons. There was apparently some error that caused the locks to be inadvertently disabled. Durham Region has restored the locks and has apologized for the inconvenience. Permit holders may once again access the lagoons. There still is ongoing construction so please be careful when you enter. Enjoy! 

Permits must be purchased in advance of entering the lagoons. They cost $5.00 as they did last year.

The permits may be purchased at the Durham Region Transfer Site located at 1623 Reach Rd, Port Perry during the following business hours .... Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 6 p.m.  To get to the transfer station, travel north on Hwy 12 past Port Perry [Hwy 7A] to the next traffic lights [Regional Road 8 = Reach Rd.] and travel east to #1623 on the north side of the road.

The lagoons are located one road north of the transfer site east off Hwy 12 on Concession Rd. 8 [don't get confused as, despite the fact that these roads are both numbered "8", they are two different roads - one is a regional paved road, the other a dirt concession road.]
