Lifeguarding hours reduced at two Del. State Park beaches starting next week
DELAWARE – The Delaware Department of Natural Resources says it will reduce lifeguarding hours at two Delaware State Park beaches starting next week.
We’re told from Monday, August 23rd through Friday, September 3rd, Delaware Seashore State Park’s Tower Road beach will be unguarded during the week, but will remain guarded on weekends.
From Monday, August 30th through Friday, September 3rd, Fenwick Island State Park’s Fenwick Lot will not be guarded during the week, but will be guarded on weekends.
Officials say reductions in hours are a result of lifeguards leaving to return to high school, college, and school sports camps. Smaller or limited guarded swimming areas at all Delaware State Parks swimming beaches will be available through Labor Day with limited staff. Those looking to swim at Delaware State Parks are encouraged to use guarded beaches, including the main beach at Cape Henlopen State Park and the South Indian River Inlet side of Delaware Seashore State Park, which will be guarded every day through Labor Day.
