BETHANY OPENS BOARDWALK AND BEACH FOR EXERCISE ONLY
FROM: COASTAL POINT
The Town of Bethany Beach on Tuesday, May 12, announced that it will re-open its beach and boardwalk, for exercise and walking only, on Friday, May 15, at 12:01 a.m.
“In light of the shift from complete closure to limited beach access along the Delmarva coast, and today’s announcement from Rehoboth Beach that they will open their beach and boardwalk to walking and exercise, beginning Friday, May 15,” officials said, “the Town of Bethany Beach will open the boardwalk and beach to pedestrian traffic.”
Bethany officials noted that Gov. John Carney’s order closing State beaches is still in effect, but the Town of Bethany Beach as of Friday will be allowing exercising/walking on the beach and boardwalk, as allowed at municipal discretion in the governor’s order.
In addition, they noted, Bethany Beach Town Code prohibits dog walking on its beach and boardwalk from May 15 until Sept. 30. That prohibition will also go into effect Friday, May 15, at 12:01 a.m., meaning that while the beach and boardwalk will re-open for walking and exercise on Friday, people will not be allowed to bring their dogs with them at that time.
