Delaware State Parks announces changes
in lifeguard hours for Labor Day weekend 2014 

DOVER (Aug. 18, 2014) – Changes in the hours and locations where swimming beaches in Delaware State Parks are guarded have been announced by DNREC’s Division of Parks and Recreation.

Beginning Monday, Aug. 25 through Friday, Aug. 29, Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware Seashore State Park’s Indian River South Inlet Day Area and Fenwick Island State Park will be guarded with limited staff. Also, guarded swimming areas will be reduced and limited in size.

Delaware Seashore State Park’s Tower Road swimming beach will be unguarded Monday, Aug. 25 through Friday, Aug. 29, but will be guarded on Labor Day weekend, Saturday, Aug. 30 through Monday, Sept. 1 (Labor Day).

Over the busy Labor Day holiday weekend, lifeguard hours will resume their regular schedule, from 9 a.m. through 5 p.m. from Saturday, Aug. 30 through Monday, Sept.1 (Labor Day).

Reductions in hours were necessary as a result of lifeguards leaving the area to return to high school, college and school sports camps.

For more information, call the Division of Parks and Recreation’s Operations Section at 302-739-9200.
