Town Beach Opening Day

Thank you for a great Mattapoisett Town Beach Opening Day!

A wonderful time was had by all at the opening of the Mattapoisett Town Beach and renovated Beach House on Saturday, June 20.

We would like to thank all of the volunteers from the Mattapoisett Recreation Committee and the Junior Friends of the Mattapoisett Free Public Library who helped run all of the events and served the ice cream and popcorn.

A special thank you to The Seaport Slip for hosting an ice cream sundae party for all attendees. The beautiful day and fun event brought out approximately 200 people who participated in Beach Olympics and relay races, seashell crafting, face painting and swimming. The updated Town Beach House has a new look and is now handicap accessible thanks to renovations funded by the Mattapoisett Community Preservation Fund.

The beautiful window boxes and planters were done by Elaine Botelho, Sandra Hering and Deanne Girouard of the Women’s Club Volunteers of Mattapoisett. Thanks to all who helped make the day such a success.

We hope the community enjoys the updated facilities and new playground equipment at the beach. If you missed the opening party, stop by to see the changes and meet the summer beach staff. We will also be hosting crafts on the beach this summer along with swimming lessons. For more information, visit us at
