“We visited Memorial Beach on Sat., 7/6, around 10:30 a.m.; life guards are on duty. Non-residents pay the $30.00 per car; gates open 7 a.m. & close at dusk-they have a boat ramp but fees are higher for that use. There is nothing like a gentle breeze on a hot, humid day to rid you of your crankiness! I have been going to this beach since I was a little child, and have many fond memories of this place! My husband & I enjoyed the day under the shade of the trees with a picnic lunch, and splashing around in the refreshingly cool and clean waters of Webster Lake-this is a scenic lake & you will spend your day admiring all of the different types of boats using the Lake! I especially enjoyed using our floats in the water. This park has a wonderful playground area for young children. Guests at the park were quiet and respectful of each other, & there was no loud music playing to distract or annoy you. We enjoyed our day so much, that we stayed until 4, went home, had supper and returned for an evening swim! I was disappointed by some of the newer rules being enforced: NO GRILLS of any type; you can’t walk beyond the ‘fenced’ areas any longer, which means you can’t walk to the tip of the small peninsula, and enjoy the beautiful, natural sandbar area or the wooded area on the other end of this small beach. Sand in the swimming areas is soft and easy on the feet once you wade past the first couple feet of shoreline. Rest rooms need to be updated & cleaned better (not a reflection of the toilets-they were kept clean) & picnic tables are a mess. Suggestions: make sure you have sandals; beach sand is gritty and tough on the feet; bring a tablecloth (dollar store plastic ones are perfect for this) & something to cover the benches, because you can get slivers. Concession stand is OK, but you pay for the convenience”.
