Ahead of the long Fourth of July weekend, the city of Sandpoint issued a reminder about the do’s and don’ts at City Beach, as well as provided more info on parking.
Access to the beach by vehicles will be limited starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 4, with overflow parking available at the city parking lot, located at the intersection of Church Street and Third Avenue.
In addition, no dogs or glass containers are allowed at the beach, and prohibited activities include drinking any kind of intoxicating beverage; shooting off any variety of fireworks, including non-aerial fireworks such as pop-its, sparklers, firecrackers and others; overnight camping; and feeding the birds, including waterfowl.
Parking will be strictly enforced, according to the city, underscoring that vehicles must park in designated stalls — between the lines — which limits oversized vehicles such as motorhomes. Single vehicles parked in designated trailer parking will be ticketed.
While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
