Magazine Beach Updates—Just Heard from DCR…

29 May

It sounds like:
*DCR awaits the Governor to make a decision about pool and spraydeck openings statewide—but it seems unlikely.
*The fence will be up for a few more weeks to allow the new grass to grow. Next week DCR may reseed and water.
*Contractors R. Bates & Sons will replant many of the shoreline plants this fall and the old willow trunk will eventually be removed.

Magazine Beach Partners won’t organize programs for the park this summer. As per the Governor, gatherings there should be keep to 10 people or less.  But we encourage you to come to the park where there’s a cool river breeze, old shade trees, wide open spaces and, the river, of course. And don’t forget the boat launch. This is a great time to take your canoe or kayak out on the river.

There are no trash cans east of the playing fields, so be sure to carry in and carry out. More as we hear more from DCR.

    Pool is filled. When will it open?
    Spray deck is in full swing!

      Yes, I know. But I have doubts that it will open. I don’t think that DCR has hired or trained lifeguards. The pool also has a big leak that they need to fix.
      Still waiting to hear from DCR….. I’ll report as soon as I hear from them.
