Starting next week, through Sept. 3, there will be only limited lifeguard coverage at both Weed Beach and Pear Tree Point Beach, the Parks & Recreation Department has announced.
The reason: There are a limited number of lifeguards at the beaches, and some are getting ready for fall sports in school or going back to school or college, a Parks & Rec official said.
“Signs will be placed at both beaches notifying the public as to dates and hours of lifeguard coverage,” the announcement said. “Guarded swim areas will be determined by lifeguards on a daily basis.
“The Parks and Recreation Department apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and reminds all patrons that they should always exercise caution in any aquatic environment.”
