Carver Lake Park and Beach

Carver Lake BeachCarver Lake Park will be closed beginning Monday, Aug. 31, to allow for replacement of retaining walls, parking lots and modifications to the entrance of the park. Work is expected to last through October, pending inclement weather. The park closure is necessary to ensure the safety of park users and construction workers.

The park closure will include the bike park and trails. The beach, which has been closed throughout the summer due to COVID-19, will remain closed. The playground and picnic shelters are still accessible using the paved trails from the local neighborhoods. Shelter rentals will not be available.
