When temperatures heat up it's great to cool off in the water but it's important to do it safely. 

Visit Idylwood Park Beach!

The beach at Idylwood Park (3650 W Lake Sammamish Pkwy NE) is open but without lifeguards this summer. We encourage everyone to play safe in and around the water by knowing the conditions, wearing a lifejacket, staying close to shore, and never swimming alone.
