Date:                June 8, 2021


The Waterfront is scheduled to open on Saturday, June 19 with limited capacity. No more than 150 bathers permitted, each able to maintain 6ft. distance. The Waterfront will be open on a daily basis from 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. through Labor Day, weather permitting.

Every effort is made to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming area staffed with lifeguards. Please be aware that if the safety of the swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity. We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little or no advance notice.

 Water Safety - in the event of thunder or lightning the waterfront will be closed. It will remain closed until 30 minutes from the last thunder or lightning observation. There are no refunds due to weather. Floatation devices are not allowed. NO EXCEPTIONS.
