Dickinson & Treadwell Parks Opening May 20, Beach and Pool updates

Eichler's Cove Beach and Treadwell Pool Updates 

At this time Eichler's cove beach does not have lifeguards and there is no swimming! Social Distancing guidelines must be followed at this facility.  If these rules are not followed the beach will be closed.  Resident and Non-resident permits must be on all vehicles to enter this facility. 

Treadwell pool remains closed until further notice

We are working toward an opening date in June for swimming at Eichler's Cove beach.  There will be new guidelines and procedures for swimming at Eichler's Cove Beach to be outlined at a later date.

At this time we are looking ahead to more executive orders, CDC and local health official guidelines for opening Treadwell Pool. 

Adjusted rates for memberships are located on our website here

 The hours for Dickinson Park and Treadwell Park will be 9:00am - 7:00pm beginning May 20th.   The Elm Drive entrance to Dickinson Park will be closed, we ask that all visitors to Dickinson Park use the Brushy Hill Road entrance.  

  • If you are under 18: To enter the parks you must be accompanied by an adult 18 or older from the same household 
  •  We will have limited parking at each facility to avoid overcrowded parks.

*Playgrounds will be fenced off and closed

*Basketball courts will be locked

*Tennis and pickleball nets will be put up with signs that specify singles matches and other guidelines for safer play
