West Beach at Lake McDonough Closed for Summer

West Beach at Lake McDonough in Barkhamsted will be closed for the summer because of a lack of qualified lifeguard applicants, according to the MDC.

East Beach will remain open for recreational users, but people heading to the beach should be aware that on busy holiday weekends, it will fill to capacity more quickly because West Beach will be closed.

The MDC said closing the beach is necessary to ensure the safety and security of all recreational users.
