Thank you everyone for a great 2016 Season! Remember to save your membership cards for 2017!
The Wayland Town Beach is now closed for the 2017 season. There is no longer any staff on site, therefore no access to bathroom and changing facilities, snack bar, and other site amenities including chairs and boats.
The beach is still accessible to residents, but all activities that take place on public property in the off-season are AT YOUR OWN RISK.
