Beached in Woodbury

Dozens of people lay out in the sun on the sandy beach at Carver Lake.

On any given day during the summer, one not-so-obvious Woodbury spot becomes a giant beach party, where dozens of people flock to it for some fun in the sun.

Carver Lake Beach is located in Carver Lake Park at 3175 Century Avenue South.

Carver Lake is a 150-acre natural resource-based park that 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, which does not have a lifeguard on duty, includes a sandy beach, a volleyball court, a play area and swimming.

The beach is open for swimming from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
