The best time to bring CHILDREN is when the beach is officially open—and attended by a lifeguard. When the beach and bathhouse are open, the hours are from 10am-5pm. There is a playground near the Endicott Rock monument, and swings near the bathhouse. Call the Laconia Parks and Recreation department at (603) 524-5046 for the dates the beach officially opens and closes for the season.

In this circa 1958 photo, the public docks have not yet been extended South past the footbridge. Note the little shack at the bottom of the stairs to the beach – purpose unknown.
