Fairport Harbor Lakefront Park summer beach operations

Summer beach operations and services are impacted by COVID-19 public health guidelines.  We regret that we cannot offer paddle rentals, concessions or lifeguarding services at this time but we are working on how to make those services available.

Parking is limited to designated spots in the main paved lot; do not park in grass, along driveways or in the street approaching the park.

If the parking lot is full, please visit another park or come back another time.

Bring your own water; and note that drinking fountains and showers may be turned off.
Please help us keep the park clean; kindly dispose of trash properly.

Please help us keep the park open by practicing six-foot physical distancing from all people that do not reside with you in your household.

Restrooms open; swimming is permitted at your own risk.

Lake Metroparks will increase services at the beach if/when it can be done safely, visit For general Lake Metroparks COVID-19 operation updates, visit
