City Park Beach Closed for Swimming

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing City Park Beach for swimming because of high bacteria counts. The beach is located in Warwick. Conimicut Point Beach, also located in Warwick, is also currently closed because of high bacteria counts.

Officials will continue to monitor the water quality and recommend reopening the beaches when the water is again safe for swimming. When a beach closure is recommended, water quality analysis is conducted by RIDOH's laboratory or a state-certified laboratory.

The status of a beach may change daily. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
