Rochester Beaches Open for Swimming

  • Text size: + -

Hot and humid weather is upon us as we move into summer. Luckily two good places to cool off are open.

Swimming is now allowed at Ontario Beach Park and Durand Eastman Beach. Ontario Beach actually opened Friday, but the water wasn't clean enough for swimming.

Guards are on duty at both Durand and Ontario every day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. if you care to swim. The water is a balmy 63 degrees.

The beaches are life-guarded through Labor Day. It is wise to call ahead to check if swimming will be allowed on the day you want to visit. The water conditions are updated every day.

Call 585-753-5887 for a recorded message.
