Swim ONLY when lifeguards are present.

Beach Rules

The following rules have been adopted for everyone’s safety and comfort.

  1. Swimming is permitted ONLY when a lifeguard is on duty, within the roped-in areas, and is done at the swimmer’s own risk.
  2. Lifeguards supervise the roped-in areas only.
  3. Directives from lifeguards must be followed at all times.
  4. Flotation devices may only be used where the user can stand.
  5. An adult must accompany children requiring supervision.
  6. Swimmers must enter and leave the swimming area via the beach.
  7. Swimming is prohibited when thunder or lightning is present.
  8. Roughness, rowdiness, spitting, foul language, littering or other conduct affecting the safety and/or comfort of others is prohibited.
  9. Alcohol, glass containers, and pets (with the exception of dogs used for medical/physical assistance) are not permitted on the beach at any time.
  10. New Jersey’s bathing beach regulations require that all children in diapers must wear plastic pants with snug fitting elastic waist and leg bands. Acceptable disposable swimpants are now available in the diaper aisle in grocery stores. Do not wash out soiled diapers in the bathing water.
  11. All boats must stay clear of the swimming areas.  Boats may not drop-off or pick-up swimmers from within the roped swimming areas.
  12. Fishing is prohibited within designated areas at all beaches.
  13. In the interest of the safety of all members using our beaches, please be advised that grills are allowed ONLY on Beaches 3 and 5 and ONLY in the grassy area where the picnic tables are, away from the beach patrons, lifeguard equipment and any playground equipment. Your cooperation is appreciated.
