THUNDER BAY – There will be no swimming at Boulevard Lake summer as work on the dam will be done. The popular pathway will likely be closed until 2021 as the repair work continues.

It is hoped swimming will be available for the summer of 2021. Boulevard Lake will be drained starting in mid-June to allow work on the dam to start.
