With this weekend's forecast calling for temperatures well into the 90s, going for a swim in the lake may be the only chance some folks get for a cool down. With that comes good news for fans of Burbank Park at Onota Lake.

The following is from the Office of the Mayor.

The Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program has announced that lifeguards will be on duty at the public beach within Burbank Park beginning Saturday, June 30.

Lifeguards will be on duty this weekend, then Wednesdays through Sundays to August 19.  Lifeguards will provide beach supervision from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on those days.

For more information, please call Becky Manship, Recreation Activities Coordinator at 413-499-9371.
