The Waupaca Parks and Rec Department manages a public beach located at South Park. The beach is equipped with a beach house including changing rooms, vending machines and bathrooms. The beach is staffed with lifeguards starting Memorial Day weekend through late August from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. assuming weather is cooperating. Please call the Parks and Recreation office if you are planning to bring a large group swimming so that we may be better able to plan. Patrons who decide to swim when lifeguards are off duty can do so at their own risk as long as they do so within park hours (7:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.).
*Swimming at your own risk is not allowed while lifeguards are performing opening and closing duties.
Swimming Lessons are taught at South Park Beach throughout the summer.
