The Lincoln Street Beach in Evanston has reopened after being closed for several years while construction was underway in the area.

The beach is located at the far east end of Lincoln Street, just north of Northwestern University’s Ryan Fieldhouse and Walter Athletics Center.

Lifeguards will be on duty from 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. through Labor Day, Sept. 3.

City of Evanston season beach tokens and 10-punch teen beach passes are accepted. Daily admission is $8 for adults and $6 for children age 1-11 and may be paid at the beach entrance.

Beach visitors can park for free in NU’s north parking garage, 2311 Campus Drive, on weekends and after 4 p.m. on weekdays. An $8 daily rate applies outside of these hours.

Dogs are not allowed on any swimming beaches in Evanston.
