Beach tokens go on sale


If you’re planning to take advantage of Evanston’s location on Lake Michigan this summer by frolicking on one or more of its five swimming beaches, now is the time to buy your beach tokens at a discount.

They are now available at a discounted rate of $26, but the price goes up to $34 on June 4.

Daily beach admission is available for $8 for those over the age of 12 and for $6 for the younger kids. Admission for children under the age of 1 is free.

A reciprocal arrangement with our neighbors in Skokie allows Evanstonians to purchase season tickets to Skokie’s public swimming pools as if they were Skokie residents and for Skokie residents to buy Evanston beach tokens as if they were Evanston residents.

Complete information about the many special arrangements available, and where you can purchase tokens, can be found on the city’s website.
