AUBURN — The city's Outlet Beach on Center Street will open with a June 16 celebration.
Parks and Recreation Director Ravi Sharma said the beach will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily throughout the summer, but without a lifeguard on duty.
"We're still planning what we're going to do," Sharma said. "But there should be refreshments available and some information from the watershed commission talking about water quality."
Auburn has no public swimming pools and the beach is one of the few public swimming holes. Swimming is not allowed in Lake Auburn since it is the city's water supply. But the beach is on the outlet between the lake and the Androscoggin River, so swimming has been allowed there.
The beach reopened last summer after wildlife officials relocated flocks of geese that had taken over the area.
Sharma said crews will be working to fix and clean up the beach's restrooms during the next couple of weeks. Last year, they city closed those restrooms and brought in a portable toilet for swimmers to use.
