RACINE — If you are headed to North Beach, officials with the City of Racine want you to know about the enhanced safety measures in place.

The City of Racine Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS) announced that North Beach will officially open its doors to the public on June 3. 

The beach will be staffed with trained lifeguards who will ensure the safety of visitors throughout the summer season. Lifeguards will be on duty seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In order to maintain a safe environment for all park-goers, PRCS has requested the cooperation of visitors in observing a set of guidelines. 

Guidelines for visitors’ safety and compliance

It is essential that visitors refrain from blocking the area in front of the lifeguard chairs, boats, or rescue boards, as this may impede potential rescue operations. Additionally, swimming should only take place within the protected area, as lifeguards reserve the right to restrict swimming in the interest of public safety when hazardous conditions are present.

Daily water conditions and park closure information

To stay informed about the daily water conditions at North Beach, residents are advised to consult the City of Racine’s website, where a new interactive beach map is also available.

Furthermore, it is important to note that North Beach Parks will close promptly at 10 p.m., and visitors are expected to vacate the premises by that time.
