Beach Ottumwa gears up for summer season

School is about to dismiss for the summer, which means itâ??s time to make your summer plans.

The Beach Ottumwa has been open on the weekends since Memorial Day.

New hours will start Wednesday, June 11th, when Beach Ottumwa will officially open up its doors for summer.

Registration for summer programs is being accepted now.

Sign-ups will take place at the office.

â??Weâ??ve had excellent attendance so far, high temperatures in the 80s so thatâ??s very encouraging at this time of the year,â?? said Gene Rathje, Director of The Beach Ottumwa.

Next on the agenda for staff members is cleaning up the park and preparing for opening day.
