Tucked away, yet convenient to downtown Amesbury, Lake Gardner beach is busy most summer days with sunbathers, swimmers, and boaters. During the summer, the town provides managed facilities.
This is a City facility, managed by the Department of Public Works.
Swimming is at your own risk as lifeguards are not on duty.
We love dogs too, but they must not be on the beach during the summer season per the Amesbury Health Department.
There are other locations in the area, including Battis and Woodsom Farms, where you can take your dog for a swim.
We invite you to visit but please be respectful of both the space and other guests. Thank you.
We are always looking for new ideas and feedback and we encourage anyone interested to email us.
