Lifeguards will be on duty from noon to 8:00 p.m. through the end of the weekend. Swimming season will end on September 4, and the swimming area will close again till next season.

The swimming area at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park was closed twice this summer due to higher than standard bacteria counts.
