Town Beaches

The public has two municipal beaches to enjoy in Bristol. Avery-Crouse Beach is located off Shore Drive at the “foot of the lake,” while Cummings Beach offers a more rustic option located off West Shore Road. There is no lifeguard on duty at either beach at any time. Beach Attendants staff the beaches June 15 to Labor Day Weekend. Parking during this time is for beach patrons only in designated spaces only. Beach hours are 7:00 am to 11:00 pm. No parking 11:00 pm to 7:00 am.
