MA - South Shore towns are readying the beaches

Many beachgoers are hoping that there may very well be a summer season on the South Shore and some towns are already taking steps to prepare.

With state parks — including World’s End in Hingham – and golf courses having reopened across Massachusetts, many beachgoers are hoping that there may very well be a summer season on the South Shore, and some towns are already taking steps to prepare.

In Marshfield at Rexhame, Brant Rock and Green Harbor beaches, the beach parking lots have been closed since April 2 and will open to permit holders on Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer. The town will also hire lifeguards and other beach staff for the summer, said Town Administrator Michael Maresco.

“We didn’t want to be overrun with cars from out of town,” he said, about closing the lots five weeks ago. Parking permits for access to the beach lots are only enforced from Memorial Day to Labor Day. They cost $45 and are for residents only and can be purchased from the town’s website.
