The Kennebunk Select Board met on June 3 and voted to relax restrictions on Gooch's, Middle and Mother's beaches, effective Saturday, June 6.
Beaches have been open for active use only and beginning Saturday, June 6, sitting and sunbathing will be allowed on the beach (chairs and beach umbrellas allowed).
Beachgoers are asked to maintain proper physical distancing from those not in your family group visiting the beach, and to use a mask if you cannot maintain a 6' distance from others.
Dogs must remain on leash at all times (max. 6' leash, no retractable leashes), and as a reminder, from June 15-Labor Day, dogs are only allowed on beaches before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. (and must still be on a leash).
Sidewalks will remain restricted to active use only (no chairs, portable beach tents, shades or umbrellas are permitted on the sidewalks).
We will continue to evaluate guidance from public health officials and notify the public of any changes.
