Kenilworth Beach

 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.  Daily


The Kenilworth beach is currently ready for the 2015 Beach Season!

Red Cross certified lifeguards will be staffing the beach starting on June 6.  Access to the beach after this date will require a beach pass.  Beach passes are available by filling out the application below.

The beach will continue to be staffed by lifeguards until Labor Day weekend.  After Labor Day, the beach remains open for public enjoyment but there will be no lifeguards on duty.  Please continue to enjoy this beautiful place but swim at your own risk and never enter the water alone.

Lifeguards will not be staffing the Kenilworth beach on weekdays due to the start of school.  Restrooms will only be open when guards are present.
