    I am planning on attending the Zumba classes on Magazine beach however, I’m concerned about receiving information for weather cancellations. For example, today is supposed to have rain and thunder storms. I’m ok with dancing in the rain, however I’m not making assumptions for everyone. Please let me know and thank you for your time in advance.

      Sorry for the late reply. We were noting rain cancellations at, under events. Can you think of a better way to communicate this? Lots of rain on Tuesday nights this past summer!

      The Zumba and Yoga classes now being held at the park are not organized by us and I don’t think that they’re officially permitted by DCR. I’d like to know more about them!

      We’re hoping to offer some FREE yoga classes this fall with Cport’s own Carol Faulkner. Stay tuned! I’ll be posting at once DCR approves them.

    Is charcoal grilling allowed?
    If yes, is there a specific area of the park to do so?
    Thank you

      Grilling at the park is against DCR regulations, however, folks grill there all the time. Please dump coals next to trash bins and NOT at the foot of trees. We want those old trees to be there for the decades to come….
