LEE COUNTY – Lee County Conservation will not open Pollmiller Beach for Memorial Day Weekend. The staff has not set an opening date for the beach at this time.
“We all know how many people enjoy visiting the beach in the summer, but we are not comfortable opening yet,” said Nathan Unsworth, Lee County Conservation Director.”
Public swimming pools remain closed, so we are following the same guidelines for the time being.”
Lee County Conservation campgrounds will be open for the holiday weekend. However, park restrooms remain closed at Lee County parks. Park staff will be evaluating the facility closures in the next week to determine what facilities can potentially reopen.
“While the beach will be closed, our parks remain open. We hope families will take advantage of other outdoor activities at our parks, like fishing, paddling, and hiking. Of course, we urge all park users to stay home if they are sick and follow social distancing guidelines while at our parks,” Unsworth said.
