FRAMINGHAM – The City’s three beaches were scheduled to open on Thursday, June 17 for the season, but only one of the three beaches actually opened, and as of Friday night, June 25, only one beach remains opens.
Two of the three beaches have failed bacteria water-quality tests since before June 17.
Lake Waushakum on Nipmuc Terrace and Saxonville Beach on Lake Road are still closed, due to elevated E.coli count.
Saxonville beach could re-open on Monday, pending the latest water quality test. The levels at that beach have dropped since June 17.
The City’s beaches are free again this year – for the second consecutive year – but only Learned’s Pond beach is open for swimmers.
The City’s beaches are open 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. seven days a week.
While the beaches are free this year, they are for residents only. Residents must show ID with a Framingham address to gain access, said the City of Framingham.
