In an effort to maintain access to freshwater swimming beaches while meeting current minimum state requirements for social distancing, the Town has reduced the number of parking spaces at two freshwater ponds.
At Long Pond beach off Crowells Bog Road, the back half of the lot has been blocked off. The boat ramp remains open and parking is available for vehicles with trailers across the road from the beach.
At Sheep Pond beach at Fishermans Landing, half of the parking area directly adjacent to the beach has been blocked off. The boat ramp and parking for vehicles with trailers and fishermen remain open for use.
These parking modifications are consistent with the comprehensive Beach Access Plan initially approved by the Select Board in April 2020 and as recently revised. This plan may be revisited in the future depending on the latest state guidance and local circumstances.
