Long Lake Beach Open for Passive Recreation for Littleton Residents Only: Entering Phase 1 May 26-June 2, 2020

UPDATE MAY 26, 2020 - Long Lake Beach is only open to Littleton, MA residents at this time.

Thank you to everyone who has waited patiently for information on Long Lake Beach. This week the PRCE staff will be at Long Lake to encourage and educate proper social distancing at the beach. The infographic contains the five highlights of the state order.
Long Lake Beach Update
We ask that everyone is patient, kind, and understanding during this period. Please remember that many people in our community have very different feelings of what is the correct plan and what is right for themselves and their families.

Our staff will be walking around the beach and in the Snack Shack if you need ANYTHING let us know. Please remain 6 ft from our staff and wear a mask during interactions.

We will use this week to collect information/data for the June 1st, 2020 BOS, PRCE Commission, BOH, and Fincomm joint meeting where a more concrete decision of 2020 beach operations will be discussed and hopefully decided.
