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