Beach Information

Summer 2021 Season

Paulus Park Beach is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend, May 29, 2021 and close Labor Day weekend, September 6, 2021 with Breezewald Beach to open June 1, 2021 and close August 8, 2021. We will continue to adhere to all of the Governor’s Orders. The Village of Lake Zurich will continue to monitor and adjust to any changes/guidance from the States lifting restrictions when allowed to do so.

Given the limited capacity, entry to the beach is on a first come, first serve basis. Caring for residents and employees in a COVID world is very different and we appreciate everyone’s flexibility as we continually adjust to CDC and IDPH guidelines and best practices.
