FRAMINGHAM – Today is the opening of the City’s three beaches.
The beaches are free to Framingham residents, for the second consecutive year.
However, on opening day, just one beach is open as two beaches did not pass water quality tests.
The City’s beaches are open Thursday, June 17, through Thursday, August 12, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. as staffing allows, said the City.
The beaches are located at Learned Pond on Shawmut Terrace, Saxonville Beach on Lake Road, and Lake Waushakum on Nipmuc Terrace.
“Currently, both Waushakum and Saxonville beaches have an elevated E.coli count, and the water will remain closed until further notice. However, sunbathing will be allowed,” said the City in a press release this morning after 9 a.m.
]The beaches will be open to Framingham residents only and will be free of charge. Resident ID, showing a Framingham address, will be required for admittance.
