"Opening of the Beach " Celebration- Russ Captured Enthusiasm

Great photos- Russ Dillingham definitely caught the enjoyment of the day. The beach park looked great thanks to Auburn Parks crew. There are clean working bathrooms thats to volunteers from Auburn Water District staff. It was easy to get to the beach thats to the LA Transit Committee that has established regular bus routes starting opening day.

I hope the community will enjoy the beach and respect the property so it remains in great shape for all. Remeber the beach is opened daily. There are lovely spots to just relax and read or jump right in... to the great Lake Auburn water!
