Reopening of Douglass Beach is coming up!
Brome Lake, June 2nd, 2020 — The Town of Brome Lake is pleased to announce that it will resume access to the Douglass Beach parking lot and green space as of Wednesday, June 3rd. In order to comply with the health measures in place during the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular to facilitate physical distancing, the entrance will be reserved to Brome Lake residents between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Citizens will be required to show their sticker (affixed to the windshield of their vehicle) to a security officer deployed on site by the Town in order to gain access to the site at the above-mentioned times. If they have not already done so, Bromoises and Bromois can purchase the sticker for $4 (valid for two years) at the Centre Lac-Brome (270 Victoria Street) between 8 a.m. and noon and 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., as well as at the Town Hall when it reopens. Stickers purchased last year are still valid.
“This news was much anticipated,” said Brome Lake Mayor Richard Burcombe. “The new measures offer our residents the opportunity to safely reconnect with this place that is so dear to us after several weeks of confinement, while facilitating its management in the current context. The call is now out to our citizens: come and enjoy your beach this summer!”
Another news that should make sun and sand lovers happy when everything is in place for swimming: the presence of lifeguards will be extended until 7 p.m. all summer long. An announcement will follow regarding the official opening of supervised swimming. In the meantime, the Town is asking its citizens to respect the regulations in effect for swimming at Douglass Beach.
Please note that the washrooms at the beach are now accessible to all. A disinfection schedule is in place to ensure everyone’s safety. As of today, overnight parking is prohibited between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. at both Douglass Beach and Tiffany Park.
