City Spray Parks, Beaches, and Pool to Open July 1

For Immediate Release: 6/17/2022 2:00 pm

WORCESTER – The City of Worcester and the Department of Public Works & Parks announce that the City’s spray parks, beaches, and pool will open on July 1.

The public is reminded that swimming at any facility that is not staffed by lifeguards is not recommended.

The spray parks at Cristoforo Colombo/East Spray Park, 180 Shrewsbury St., and Greenwood Spray Park, 14 Forsberg St., will be open until 7 p.m., seven days a week, until Labor Day.

The Crompton Park Pool and all city beaches – Bell Pond, Indian Lake, John J. Binienda Memorial Beach at Coes Pond, and Shore Park – will be open from July 1 through Aug. 22.

When swimming this summer, please be sure to follow these Water Safety Tips:

  • Always supervise young children around water (stay close enough to reach a child at all times and avoid distractions such as playing cards, reading a book, or talking on the phone). Always have a phone nearby in case of an emergency.
  • A drowning can happen quickly and usually silently. Avoid alcohol while supervising children and before or during swimming, boating, or waterskiing.
  • Prevent water-related injuries and drownings by swimming with a buddy and swimming where there’s a lifeguard. Always use life jackets and secure personal flotation devices—do not substitute air-filled or foam toys for safety gear. When enjoying natural bodies of water, be aware of the local weather conditions and forecast. Strong winds and thunderstorms with lightning can be dangerous.
  • Watch for dangerous waves. Also know and obey the posted warnings.
