All but one of Evanston’s beaches are closed for swimming on Independence Day because of high pollution levels.

The only beach that is open for swimming is South Boulevard Beach. 

The sand portion of all beaches will remain open, except Clark Street Beach, which is closed for setup of the Fourth of July firework display.
