A Vernon beach on Okanagan Lake will reopen to the public this week.
The City will open Hurlburt Park on Eastside Road Thursday for lake access and beach related activities.
The park has been closed for upgrades, but the improvements have been put on hold until September.
The park is open from 7 am to 9 pm daily.
It offers the same basic services and amenities as last year, with beach and dock access, garbage receptacle, temporary toilet facilities and an abbreviated maintenance program.
“The park is open for beach and swimming uses primarily,” says a City release. “The overall site has been inspected and found safe for public use. The dock received minor repairs and the swimming platform is ready for use by the public. There are no swim buoys and no lifeguards, so caution is advised. Visitors are asked to pack out what they have packed in for their use during their stay.”
Fires, camping, smoking, and alcohol are not permitted anywhere in the park.
Limited parking can be found within the Eastside Road Right-of-Way, off the paved driving surface. No motorized traffic is allowed in the park, beach or dock.
