(Waukesha, WI) – Waukesha County Parks beach swimming season will open with Swim at Your Own Risk (SAYOR) hours at six beach locations on Friday, May 27. There will be no lifeguards staffed at any beaches this season due to the labor shortage.

 

“Our park beaches are a top summer attraction for both residents and visitors, and we are glad we have swim at your own risk options available at all locations to allow public access to the water when no lifeguards are available,” said Paul Farrow, Waukesha County Executive. “I invite everyone to get outside and enjoy the sun and sand!”
