A much anticipated element in the summer season begins tomorrow....Presque Isle State Park opens for swimming.

The park's 11 mile stretch of sand and waist-deep water is what makes Presque Isle such an attraction for local residents and tourists from all over the region.

But the park takes quite some work every year to be in shape for the millions who visit. Consisting of year round maintenance and a last minute push to create a nice environment for the summer crowds--park employees have been busy getting the park ready for summer.

Some of the beaches that will open tomorrow include: Beach 1 West, Barracks Beach, Beaches 6-8, 10 and 11.
