With the air temperature reaching into the low eighties, Madison Park Beach this weekend looked very much as it does at the height of summer---minus the swimmers. The water temperature was most likely in the mid-50s, typical for this time of year, so there was a lot more wading, paddling, and kayaking going on than immersion. Water temperatures generally range from the mid-60s to as high as 75 degrees when summer heats up.
We're still six weeks away from the arrival of the lifeguards. Madison Park Beach officially opens on June 23 (lifeguard hours: noon until 7 pm on weekdays and 11 am until 7 pm on weekends).
In the meantime, no one's complaining.
