The buoyed swim area at Paignton Beach was moved to reduce the potential for injury caused by having swimmers and boaters in the same area. With so many people enjoying Paignton Beach, especially around the point, and the increasing size and number of boats in the area, the decision was made to centralize the swim area and provide boat parking on either side.

Parks Canada takes Wildfire preparation seriously and measures are underway to reduce the risk from potential wildfires to Waskesiu and neighboring communities.
