“Boats in swimming area.”

Would have been a nice little family beach area except the DL PD apparently has no problem with boats in the small swimming area. Very Dangerous! Wasted trip!

Clean up after your dogs people. I was pretty bothered by the state of the grassy area above the beach. Lots of dog poop. The city either needs to invest in some bag stations for pet owners or a cleanup crew. The beach was pretty clear and clean with lots of families enjoying the area.

The City Beach area is a nice place to walk along the Lake and picnic in the Park and spend some relaxing time just hanging out. Watch for Farmer's Markets dates held there.

Even on a blustery morning the beach was hopping. Zoomba class going on and people all around due to Triathalon that morning. Just watch where you walk....lots of presents from all the geese around.

I used to come here as a teenager and hadn't visited in years. I brought my teenage daughter to DL and we hung out at the beach. Fun people, great people watching, free parking.....nice way to spend an afternoon. The area hasn't changed drastically since I was a kid and that was quite nice. In the old days it used to get very busy on weekend days (we were there on a Thursday) so there wasn't much of a crowd.
