It’s Water Safety Week! Living next to the big lake, reminders about how to stay safe while having fun are necessary, which is why the city of Duluth and the Parks and Recreation Department have combined education with that all-important fun!

All week long, people have been participating in the annual sand sculpting contest.

If you don’t have sand sculpting tools, the city has some you can borrow. They’re at the beach house on Park Point.

The city is planning to wrap up Water Safety Week with a beach volleyball tournament on Sunday, July 25, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Park Point 4v4 sand volleyball courts.
