Beach Hours Extended for Sunsets

(Michigan City, IN) - Washington Park beach is open two hours longer now.  Last week, the beach in Michigan City reopened from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. after being closed for six weeks due to concerns about large crowds spreading COVID-19. 


The city council Tuesday night voted to close the beach at 8 p.m.  Councilman Don Pryzbylinski said the extra two hours will give people a chance to watch the sunset now happening sooner with autumn fast approaching.


Since reopening, the beach is restricted to people with season passes from 2019 and 2020 to provide space for social distancing.
