Head to the library for beach and boat launch passes

Kate Konkin, of the Bloomfield Public Library, shows the new free Wellington Beach Day Use pass that will allow County residents to use the beach free of charge when others will pay $10 per person to enter.

Wellington Beach passes are now available at all Prince Edward County Public Library branches. The boat launch season passes are soon to be available.

Admission to Wellington Beach will be free of charge for residents with a summer 2021 pass. The passes are now available by calling any library branch to set up a curbside pick-up. Bring proof of residency (such as licence or utility bill with name and postal code). Visitors will be charged $10 per person, whether in a vehicle or walking to the beach. The Wellington Beach gate is to be staffed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from June 4 to Sept. 19 on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

Passes are good for repeat use and do not need to be returned to the library. One pass may be used by a group of people (family, friends etc). The passes are not to be shared with vacation rental guests. Passes are necessary while the gates are staffed, even if you’re just popping in to walk your dog, or cycle through to see the sunset.

While you’re talking to the library, ask about borrowing Quinte Conservation Area Parking, and provincial park passes.

Paid parking at the following boat launches, replaces launching fees:
1. Wellington Beach,
2. McFarland Park/Loyalist Parkway,
3. Glendon Green/ County Rd. 18,
4. Mabel Kleinsteuber/ County Rd. 12,
5. Big Island/ County Rd. 21,
6. Northport Centennial Park,
7. Prinyers Cove,
8. Rossmore/ Ridley Street,
9. Wellers Bay/ Edward Drive

The fees are $10 per day for a vehicle and $20 per day for a vehicle with trailer.

The annual launch pass is being converted to an annual launch parking pass to be valid at any of the nine listed launches. The annual pass for residents is $50 and will soon be available at all the library branches and Shire Hall. Visitors pay $100. Fees in effect June 1.

Anyone who has already purchased a season’s pass for boat launching ($85) under the former system will be reimbursed for the overpayment and given a season pass for parking at boat launches.
