I love the energy at Grant Park Beach in recent years, and the summer of 2021 promises to be another fun one at this community treasure.
First, I want to thank Milwaukee County Parks for their work in recent weeks cleaning up a lot of the larger wood debris that marked the beach throughout the summer of 2020. If you haven’t seen the beach lately, take a drive down — and enjoy the smooth road when you do. The access road is looking great after being resurfaced last year, thanks to advocacy from the Friends of Grant Park and Supervisor Steven Shea.
And then there is what is inceasingly making the beach a destination these days: Ferch’s Beachside Grille and Volley Life beach vollyeball leagues. Both are back in 2021.
Ferch’s reopens the weekend of May 21, and beach volleyball returns in June, after a pandemic summer off.
Details on the Ferch’s and Volley Life Facebook pages. And here is a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel story on the volleyball. Registration is open now.
Spread the word, and we’ll see you at the beach, South Milwaukee!
