Local getaway: Carver Lake Beach
Woodbury saw temperatures in the high 80s for most of last week, and for many the weather called for one thing - the beach.
Residents came out in droves to Carver Lake Beach where beachgoers could be found enjoying everything from swimming, volleyball, playing in the sand, picnics and generally just having fun in the sun.
Carver Lake Beach is located in Carver Lake Park at 3175 Century Avenue South. The 150-acre natural resource-based park includes woods, steep lakeshore bluffs and a 40-acre deep lake.
Woodbury residents can access the park by taking Courtly Road west as it curls toward 494, turning into Century Avenue. Signs for the park can be found near the underpass.
The beach is open for swimming from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Beach rules include:
- Children age 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult
- No glass containers
- No smoking
- No pets
