State parks post changes in lifeguard hours starting Aug. 25
Changes in the hours and locations where swimming beaches in Delaware State Parks are guarded have been announced by Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Division of Parks and Recreation.
From Monday, Aug. 25 through Friday, Aug. 29, Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware Seashore State Park’s Indian River South Inlet Day Area and Fenwick Island State Park will be guarded with limited staff. Also, guarded swimming areas will be reduced and limited in size.
Delaware Seashore State Park’s Tower Road swimming beach will be unguarded Aug. 25 through 29, but will be guarded on Labor Day weekend, Saturday, Aug. 30 through Labor Day Monday, Sept. 1.
Lifeguard hours will resume their regular schedule from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Saturday, Aug. 30 through Monday, Sept. 1.
Reductions in hours are necessary as a result of lifeguards leaving the area to return to high school, college and school sports camps.
