Other Ideas: Wingaersheek Beach; Singing Beach; Stage Fort Park Beaches; Crane Beach; Wayland Town Beach
The beach was recently reopened after undergoing improvements in drainage, landscaping, repair to fixed structures, and various safety issues. The Lake Gardner Improvement Association is now working on a plan to develop a formal drop area for canoes, kayaks, small sail craft, and other car top boats. For now, though, the beach is just for sunning, swimming and playing.
The beach is open from dawn to dusk, year-round. Access is off of High Street, on an unnamed street located about a half-mile from downtown Amesbury.
From I-495 N: Take exit #54 (Rt. 150) onto Rt. 150 Ext. toward Amesbury. Drive for 1.1 mi, until Rt. 150 becomes Greenleaf Street. After .2 mile, turn right onto Friend Street. Turn left onto Whitehall Road, then right onto High Street. Drive for .2 mile - access is on the left.
From I-95 N: Take exit #58B (Rt. 110 W) onto Macy Street (Rt. 110) toward Amesbury. Drive for .4 mile, then turn right onto Elm Street. After 1.7 miles, bear right onto Market Square, then continue onto High Street for .4 mile. Access is on the right.
- Arrive early in the day for a choice spot under a shady tree. Bring a picnic lunch and spend a relaxing day at the beach!
- Parking is free and abundant.
