The beach is now closed for the 2023 season, meaning we no longer test water samples. Normal beach hours are 10 am to 5 pm.
Additional parking for the beach, Lakefront Park or Laimon Family Lakeside Park can be found at Koepp Park (201 Oakton Avenue).
Water Quality Sign Postings
Important, Please Read
Signs will be placed on metal posts at the north and south end of the beach, as well as a single road barricade in the center of the beach that will signify the current status of the beach water quality.
A GREEN good sign will be posted when E coli counts are less than 235 units per 100 mL of water according to the EPA’s good water quality guideline.
A YELLOW advisory sign will be posted when E coli counts are between 235 and 999 units per 100 mL of water. This means that the E coli levels are elevated, however do not warrant closing the beach per the EPA’s good water quality guidelines.
A RED closed sign will be posted when E coli counts exceed 1,000 units per 100 mL of water. This means that the counts are too high for safe swimming. The water will be retested daily until the counts reach a safe level and the beach can be reopened.
