Parking at Our City Parks and Beaches
As you head out to the Beverly parks and beaches, please note the posted signage. Many streets have been temporarily changed to allow Beverly resident parking only. Orange signs reading, “Resident Parking Only” on Lothrop Street and the surrounding streets indicate that the parking is reserved for all residents of Beverly. The parking lot at Lynch Park is temporarily limited in capacity and only available to residents. The parking lot at Dane Street Beach is temporarily closed to all. Additional handicapped accessible parking spaces have been made available along Lothrop Street. These measures are intended to prevent overcrowding at the parks and beaches, encouraging a safe and healthy environment.
These measures are necessary to comply with the Governor’s order on Beaches. With a requirement of twelve feet between beach blankets and six feet between any two individuals, we cannot enjoy our beaches in the same fashion we did last summer. Unavoidably right now, fewer people will be allowed on the beaches. If beaches get too crowded, people will be turned away. Limiting parking is necessary until further notice. We thank you in advance for thinking of others’ health and for your compliance with these temporary measures.
Any Beverly resident who believes they were wrongly ticketed in one of our temporary “Beverly Resident Parking Only” zones should call City Hall at 978-605-2333.
