People still wanting to enjoy the ocean even though the weather is getting cooler are being reminded that Park Beach is patrolled all year round.
 

“The local surf clubs have ceased patrols until the start of the September/October school holidays and we’ve also cut back our own patrols from most beaches as we go into the winter, but we’ll still be at Park Beach seven days a week,” said Senior Lifeguard Sonny Tisdell.

 

“We would urge anyone wanting to make the most of the water to please come to Park Beach and swim between the flags.

 

“We’re the only beach between Newcastle and the Gold Coast that can offer year round patrols.”

 

The Lifeguards are also keen that accommodation providers and locals push the message to any visitors – particularly from overseas - that Park Beach is patrolled seven days a week from 9am until 4pm.

 

“The golden rule is, as always, bathe between the flags at a patrolled beach,” added Sonny.
