Many Bay View folk remember the fine swimming beach at South Shore Park. Negative water conditions several years ago brought out the signs, “Beach Closed,” and a fine tradition came to a halt.
Crowds are back at Bradford Beach and at Grant Park.
Members of the South Shore Park Watch believe Bay View folk should make every effort to provide a safe place for children and adults to swim and enjoy summer days.
This will be the topic of discussion at future meetings of the South Shore Park Watch group, which successfully led an effort to rebuild the much-used bike trail along the lake. The group also initiated the Saturday morning South Shore Farmers Market, cooperates with park staff to keep the lakeside park attractive, and steadily supports programs and activities at the park.
South Shore Park Watch meets at 7pm the second Thursday of each month at the South Shore Park Pavilion. Membership is open and young adults and parents with an interest in the park and its future are urged to attend.
Dive in! The water is fine.
South Shore Park belongs to you.
