FRAMINGHAM – If you plan on visiting one of the City’s 3 Beaches this weekend, please be sure to read through this year’s Rules & Regulations. There have been a number of changes made due to COVID-19 in accordance with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Safety Standards and Guidelines for Beaches.

You can find the Rules & Regulations, in English, Spanish, & Portuguese, here:…/2020_city_beach_rules__regu…

One of the most significant changes is how people are allowed to utilize the facility.

All users must be Framingham Residents.

Even though there is no charge to use the facility, ALL users must have a beach tag (or receipt) and an ID in order for admittance.

Beach Tags can be reserved at

We must abide by maximum capacity rules because of COVID. In doing so, we have created 30 ‘User Areas’ at each beach, available on a first-come first-served basis.

There are approximately 14-16 spots available on the sand and approximately 14-16 spots available on the grass at each beach.

Once the 30 ‘User Areas’ are full – we are at capacity and, unfortunately, must turn people away.

In addition, the water at Waushakum Beach is CLOSED due to an elevated E.coli reading.

We will post an announcement when the water is back within acceptable limits and reopens to the public.

The sand and grass areas are still open for the public to enjoy this weekend.
