CHESAPEAKE BEACH WATER PARK OPEN FOR SUMMER FUN!  The Water Park re-opened on Thursday June 21, 2018.   The Chesapeake Beach Water Park staff and the Town’s Department of Public Works worked tirelessly to make repairs to leaks under the park infrastructure. We are happy to announce that the pools are full, and the issues have been successfully resolved.  For more information please visit www.chesapeakebeachwaterpark.com .

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  The Town expects the boardwalk from 14th and B street to 11th and B street (or the Bayfront Park B Street entrance) to be closed for the next 60 days. The Town needs to be assured that the soil above the boardwalk is stable prior to any repairs taking place on the boardwalk. Residents should be aware that the areas that are blocked off to the public are done so for safety and should not attempt to pass them. Thank you for your patience as we ensure the public’s safety.
