Officials say it’s unlikely that Kershaw Beach opens until summer

Don’t expect Kershaw Beach to open on schedule if you’re a Canandaigua-area resident.

The Messenger Post reports that city officials do not anticipate the beach and bathhouse at Kershaw Park to open for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

City Manager John Goodwin says there are too many unknowns at this time to know precisely when Kershaw will open.

Councilmembers have suggested a July 1st opening, but it’s not clear at this time if social distancing protocols will allow that to happen.

If it does open this season, it may have to open at reduced operation. Kershaw is one of the few public access points to Canandaigua Lake.
