Changes to Labor Day Weekend Operations at Main Beach

Mon August 31, 2020

With the regulations as part of the Restore Illinois, the Crystal Lake Park District had to reduce lifeguard certification offerings, which limited our ability to hire lifeguards. Due to this lifeguard shortage the Crystal Lake Park District Main Beach (300 Lakeshore Dr, Crystal Lake) swimming area and boat rentals will be closed for Labor Day weekend.  While we are happy that we were able to keep Main Beach open for the past 8 weeks, in the interest of safety we must close the swim area for the last weekend of the season.  The park area and playground will remain open, 9 am-dusk for those interested in picnicking while properly social distancing.  Splash pads will be extended through September 13 at Veteran Acres Acorn Alley (corner of Walkup Ave & Route 176) and Woodscreek Park Crystal Castle (850 Willow Tree, Crystal Lake).
