When Does the City of Framingham Open Its Public Beaches?

FRAMINGHAM – Now that the weather is sunny and getting warmer, and school is about to end for the year, it’s time to think beach.

The City of Framingham operates three public beaches. They are Learneds Pond, Saxonville Beach, and Lake Waushakum.

The beaches will open on June 21 and close for the season on August 16.

Beaches are open Sundays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

However, a beach tag is required for use.

Beach tags go on sale ONLINE on June 11.

Tags can also be purchased at the Framingham Parks & Recreation office on Union Avenue at Bowditch Field.

Tags must be shown to the gate attended to enter the beach.

One-day passes will be sold at each beach gate.

Framingham Parks & Recreation reserves the right to revoke a beach tag for not adhering to the rules of the beach.

There is no refunds for lost beach tags.

Beach tag fees:

  • $15 per resident or $40 per family (maximum 6 people)
  • $30 per non-resident and $70 per non-resident family (maximum 6 people)

A family consists of 2 or more people who are related directly by birth, marriage, or adoption and are living and functioning as a single household at a single address – extended family members are excluded, according to Framingham Parks & Recreation.

The City of Framingham has lifeguards at each of the three beaches.

Framingham Parks & Recreation also offers two sessions of swimming lessons, for those ages 3 to 18, for an additional fee.
