DOVER (Aug. 17, 2015) – 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. 24 through Friday, Aug. 28, and Monday Aug. 31 through Friday, Aug. Sept. 4, Delaware Seashore State Park’s Tower Road and Fenwick Island State Park’s Fenwick Lot will be unguarded. Weekends will be guarded.
All other state park guarded swimming beaches (Cape Main and South Side Inlet) will be guarded every day through Labor Day with limited staff. Smaller/limited swimming areas will be available through Labor Day.
All swimming beaches will be guarded on weekends through Labor Day. Lifeguard hours will not change, and will be 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily.
Reductions in hours were necessary as a result of lifeguards leaving the area to return to high school, college and school sports camps.
