Labor Day Holiday: Final Weekend to Swim at Presque Isle

Presque Isle may be open year round, but swimming is prohibited starting Monday after 6:30pm.
August, 30, 2013 - The Labor Day weekend is here, marking the end of the swimming season at Presque Isle.

Park officials say the year at the park has been a success, with hundreds of thousands taking advantage of the park.

Harry Leslie, park manager, says the numbers so far this year compared to last year are down about 5%, attributing that to the rainy June and July months.

Although the swimming season comes to an end at 6:30 Monday night, Leslie says the park is a year round retreat.

"Essentially Monday the beaches close down for swimming, but 365 the park is open,” said Leslie.

Leslie says although Labor Day weekend is the final big summer weekend at the park, he expects a busy September 6th weekend with the Barber Beast on the Bay, Light the Night and the conclusion of the Perry 200 celebration at Perry Monument.
