As an effort to avoid the spread of COVID-19, Port Huron Recreation Department is opening Lakeside and Lighthouse beach in phases. This weekend, patrons can enjoy the beaches by following social distancing rules and keeping 6 ft. between themselves and others outside of their group.
Amenities such as grills, picnic tables, benches, splash pads, pavilions, playground equipment, and restrooms will remain closed to minimize common touch points in the area. Porta potties will be available on site.
“We strive to provide a safe environment to our residents so we can continue to keep the parks and beaches open,” said Nancy Winzer, director of Port Huron Parks and Recreation. “We are hoping to have amenities available again as soon as the spread of COVID-19 is no longer an issue,” Nancy said.
