SAFETY NOTICE - May 12, 2023

Please wear a PFD while on the docks in the Marina.

Best Practices - Children should always wear a personal floatation device (PFD) whenever they are near any body of water. Furthermore, when children are in areas where they may be prone to accidentally falling into the water, a responsible individual should always be with them.
When a person is walking the docks, embarking or disembarking from a boat, a “buddy” system should be used. 


The City of Burlington will allow overnight parking for Marina Members until further notice.  Please visit the Marina Manager for a LPMA STICKER and display it on your dashboard if you are parking at the Marina after 11 pm or overnight.  The City will monitor usage and track any issues.

NOTICE - September 7, 2021


I hope that you’re enjoying the 2021 boating season and we hope that September will be the best boating weather that we’ve seen this year.

I do want to caution all of you, especially the new boaters to LaSalle, that September can be windy and cause some problems. The new break wall has exceeded our expectations for protection but please, don’t let your guard down as we approach the fall. Wind can still do a lot of damage to boats. Make sure that your boat is well tied with plenty of lines. If you’re new to boating, believe me, don’t take this for granted. We have seen a lot of damage in the past because people just didn’t understand the forces that can be at work in open water. Enclosures are also vulnerable in high winds so keep a close watch for wind conditions and act accordingly, as in, take them down. And last, do not be an absent boater. You need to check on your boat at least weekly. 

NOTICE - July 26, 2021

Safety on the water is something that none of us should take for granted. 

We have been looking for ways to give our customers some form of safe boating guidance and up to date weather information. I think this one goes a long way to fulfilling that goal. There are many weather apps that boaters can access and today we send you another one. It’s fairly new and it offers up to date weather information for boaters that just could save your life.

This came to me through the “Boating Industry” newsletter and I’m passing it on for the benefit of our marina people.

The app, is provided by The Canadian Safe Boating Council and is called  “Weather to Boat”. You can download it through your app store and it’s free.  

You can also visit their website at  for a huge array of videos and information on all kinds of boating subjects. They have done a great job with these so check them out. You’re sure to benefit.

Boating is a great sport and tons of fun but don’t take it for granted. The danger potential is serious.

Safe boating everyone.

20 foot Docks 

We have many people who ask about the 20 ft docks and want to know if they can put a boat in that is 20’4” or such. 

The answer, is a NO. The 20 ft docks were created for mostly fishing type boats but many others are attracted to them because the price is very reasonable. But we won’t allow boats that are over 20 ft in that area.

Our pricing is by boat size, not by dock size. And, sizing is LOA, which means “Length Overall”. This is quite literate. If your boat is over the “slot” size, ie  up to 20 ft, it must go into the next size.  This often includes a boat that is 19 ft, but the outboard on the back brings it to 20’ 10 inches overall. This can sometimes include a sailboat rudder, a swim platform, a bowsprit or even an anchor holder that protrudes 10 inches or so at the bow. If it’s over 20 ft overall, it has to go to the next size.

The docks are 20 ft long so it’s easy to monitor. Please measure carefully. If you bring a boat into that area that is over 20’, you will have to move to the next size dock and pay the extra. And, note, that we don’t issue refunds.


Electrical Power at LaSalle Park Marina

A note to all new patrons to LaSalle.  LaSalle has many good things to offer, a beautiful setting, some amazing nature trails and wildlife etc.  The one thing that we do lack is; abundant electrical power.

LaSalle has electrical power, but it is “shared”. As the years go by, we find, that boats come equipped with more and more electrical items on board. If you are considering LaSalle as your boating home for the summer, be aware that there is ‘shared” power. That means that you can not assume that your boat will be plugged in, all of the time. The rule has always been, when at the Marina and “on board your boat” you are welcome to plug in. Please be respectful of your immediate neighbour's power requirements and be prepared to share.  When you leave, we ask that you unplug. As well, we do not allow high power drawing electrical appliances, air conditioners etc. We do have plans to upgrade the power system in the future.

This arrangement is not a problem for many people, but there are others, who need constant power for the boat. If you are one of those, perhaps this is not the place for you. Thank you.


Please remember that all paperwork has to be complete and in our hands before your boat goes into the marina. There are many people from previous years who need to show an updated insurance policy showing minimum two million liability coverage.


Hi Everyone and welcome to the 2021 Boating Season. 

Besides the new Break Wall, there are several other new things for 2021. Please take careful note as they are important.

Insurance minimum requirements change;  Beginning this year, you will be required to have and provide proof of insurance that includes  2 MILLION DOLLARS  3RD PARTY LIABILITY, on all boats in the marina.  

Stickers, you will receive a new sticker to put on your boat to prove validation. Please place it on the windshield for power boats or on the side of the mast that will be facing the main walkway so that we can easily see it. Thank you. 

No Frills;  We are pleased to announce that this year, this area of the marina will have the same season as the rest, mid May until about Thanksgiving. All else in no frills remains the same. You will see this category under boats up to 20 feet. 

Communication;  we ask that you ensure that your email address is legible and up to date as this is our main method to communicate with you. As well, our BULLETIN BOARD is our secondary method and you should check that board on a regular basis.

Safety Items;  If you choose to make use of any electricity in the marina, you MUST use a proper MARINE GRADE shore power cord. Regular or home made electrical cords are not allowed. We continue to see “plugged in”  electrical cords, in the water. This poses “ENORMOUS DANGER” to all of us. We will unplug any such cords the first time. If it happens again, we will take the cord to the office. and you will not be allowed to use the electrical system after that. If need be, you will be expelled from the marina. We have to be tough on this as it could easily kill some innocent person or even yourself. This is no joke. As well, you should always purchase and use an inline GFI for those boats that do not have such protection on board. 

Marina Occupancy; in order to bring your boat into the marina you must first; make out the paperwork, provide proof of insurance, and provide payment for the duration of your stay. THIS MUST BE DONE, “BEFORE” you put your boat in the marina. If you do not have these in place, you are “TRESPASSING” and will be penalized. 

All boats will be assigned to a specific dock. You are not allowed to change that spot unless and until you have been re-assigned by the manager. If you must dock in an emergency, you must use the very outer docks, the highest number docks, and only for a brief time. This again needs to be coordinated through the manager. In the event being caught out in a  storm and you are looking to dock, the pier is perhaps a safer option until; the storm passes. 

High water levels continue to be a reality in the Great Lakes. We have been very fortunate that our floating dock system has allowed us relatively little negative impact so far. Changing water levels can in some cases, cause dock angles to change and everyone in the marina needs to be aware of this ongoing potential for danger. Anyone using this marina, needs to understand that there are various risks involved. Each person who enters the marina, does so at their own risk.  

Thank you so much for choosing LaSalle to dock your boat and welcome to the new season. We appreciate having you with us.
