  • Sandy Beach Policy Changes

    The first priority of the Hopkinton Parks & Recreation Department is to ensure the health and safety of our residents. This commitment has led to the creation of a new policy regarding Sandy Beach Park. 

    The Parks and Recreation Department, in coordination with the Commissioners, Public Health and Public Safety, have placed new policies in effect at Sandy Beach Park, effective on May 29, 2021. These policies will improve parking, overcrowding and will create a safe and pleasant beach experience for residents.

    Starting this year, use of the park, including access to the boat launch, will be limited to Hopkinton residents only from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. During this time, access to the park will require a season pass or a daily pass. These passes will only be available to Hopkinton residents. Anyone using the beach/boat launch without a resident only sticker or day pass during this time period is subject to a fine. This policy was approved by the elected commissioners on the Hopkinton Parks & Recreation Board.

    Details for residents on how to purchase seasonal passes can be found HERE.

    Health and Safety Guidelines During Covid-19 Recovery 
    Summer Programs 2021


    The announcement by Gov. Baker that the state of emergency is ending on June 15, 2021 has prompted  Hopkinton Parks & Recreation to create policies and procedures to address the health and safety of our participants and staff for summer programming. Programs will be required to adhere to the current state suggested guidelines as follows:

    Face coverings - Unvaccinated staff, educators, and children 5 years and older will continue to wear masks when indoors.  Masks will not be required outdoors.

    Visitor policy - We will limit non-essential visitors who are not vaccinated to the maximum extent possible.  

    Ventilation and circulation of fresh air - We will be supplying fans near open windows along with scheduling the majority of activities outdoors.

    Physical Distance - When indoors, children will be assigned to stable, discrete groups as much as possible while promoting a minimum distance of 3 feet.

    Hygiene - Hand sanitizing stations will be strategically located throughout the program space.

    Sick or symptomatic individuals - A space will be designated for the isolation of any sick or symptomatic individuals until they leave the program.

    Continuation of targeted cleaning practices - High touch surfaces will be cleaned throughout the day.

    Community risk - The Parks & Recreation staff will continue to communicate all COVID-19 related updates to our participants and families.

    Health attestations and visual screening are no longer required by the state. State guidelines now suggest the following:

    • Individuals with new symptoms stay at home at get tested for COVID-19
    • Individuals who test positive should follow DPH guidelines on isolation and quarantine.
    • Close contact should follow the isolation and quarantine protocols.
    • Contact tracing will continue to be conducted by the local Board of Health.
    • The local Board of Health will continue to be responsible for determining which individuals need to quarantine.
    • Contact tracing will not be required for individuals when they are outdoors.
