Dear 2011 Season Pass Holders:

Thank you for purchasing your 2011 beach season passes. There are a few things that staff would like to make you aware of this season.



Please be advised that there is a drop off at Tower Road Beach approximately 10 feet from the shoreline. This drop off at the deepest point is about 8 feet deep. Please advise weak swimmers that the water will become deeper quickly.  Also please be within an arms length of children while at the beaches.



Staff will be doing beach sweeps at every beach with garbage bags to clean up the beaches. If you have any garbage that needs to be thrown away, don't hesitate to give the lifeguards your garbage and they will be gladly to throw it away for you.


Thank you for your cooperation and the staff looks forward to providing you with a great lakefront experience this summer.
