With how cool it’s been recently, a swim in Lake Michigan may not have been at the top of your list of things to do — but time is growing short — Evanston’s beaches last day of operation is next Monday, Labor Day.

And if you’re thinking of heading to the beach this week, you should check the city website’s beach closing page.

With schools back open, the beaches are short on lifeguards and some beaches may be closed to swimmers because of the staffing shortage.

Beach status information is also available by phone at 847-859-7822.
