Lavallette Boardwalk Reopens This Friday
With so much information being released every single day, it's hard to keep track of which beach, park, and boardwalk is open, and which ones remain closed.
At this time, it seems like most beaches and boardwalks have reopened in New Jersey. If not, they will be open by Memorial Day Weekend.
Case of point, Lavallette. They opened their beaches back on May 5th, but said they won't reopen the boardwalk until further notice.
Today is that day...Lavallette has announced they they will reopen their Boardwalk this Friday, May 22nd
According to their Facebook page:
On Friday, May 22, 2020, the boardwalk will be open for walking and exercising. Bikes will be PROHIBITED AT ALL TIMES this summer on the boardwalk. Anyone using the boardwalk is asked to keep as far right as possible to increase distance while passing others, and continually keep 6 feet of separation from non-family members.
Starting this Saturday, Seaside Heights will begin Phase 2 of their reopening plan for the beach and the boardwalk which consists of the boardwalk staying open until 11 p.m instead of 5 p. m, and their policy regarding beach badges.
