A Place to Gather

17 Aug

Update: Because of Hurricane Henri, the Magazine Beach Park pool will close TODAY, Saturday, August, 21 @ 6:45pm for the season. The spraydeck will be open through September 6.

On Saturday the Perez and Garcia families hosted a reunion at the park—with family from Florida, Maryland, Connecticut, North Carolina and Virginia all gathering there. Magazine Beach has been their go to place for years!

Also, there, was a big birthday party in the grove and dance party on the terrace.

How we need this place to gather.

If you are organizing a larger event at the park, be sure to apply for a DCR permit. That way you can be sure that other events don’t conflict with your own.

While the spraydeck will remain open for a bit, the pool and bathhouse (with bathrooms) close this Sunday, August 22. Update: DCR will keep the port-o-potties at the park until the end of September. Thank you, DCR!

Enjoy these last glorious days of summer.

    Thank you for these beautiful pictures of joyous service and social activities at Magazine Beach.
    I have often wondered why the pools close so early, the summer weather extends until mid Sept and not everyone is returning to school. Do you know to whom I can discuss this?
    Thank you again!

      Most of DCR’s lifeguards go back to school and want the last week of August off. We’ve requested a later closing for years, but DCR can’t find the staff. Enjoy this week at the pool. It will close for the season this Sunday at 6:45pm!
