Posted earlier on June 28:

Due to the recent ongoing heavy rains, consequent bluff erosion and safety concerns, the north beach access road and the wooden boardwalk that goes down to the beach will be closed until further notice. 

All vehicles will be asked to access the beach using the south beach access road.  Resident pedestrian access to the beach from Forest Park will only be available at the concrete steps at the middle of the ring road and at the wooden steps at the south end of the the Park which lead to the are north of the boat storage area.

The non-resident entrance will be shifted south to the wooden steps at the south end of the Park.  The paid entry point will be located at the bottom of the stairs on the beach level.

The City Staff and engineering consultants are reviewing the situation.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
