About this Location

The 1-acre Avon Lake Cemetery and the 5.8-acre Veterans Memorial Park are on adjacent property north of US-6 (Lake Road) at the northern terminus of OH-83 (Avon Belden Road) in Avon Lake.

Together, the properties front 1,000 feet of shore including a 300-foot sand beach. The sand is between six groins, each extending 40 feet into Lake Erie and providing fishing access. Swimming is permitted on the beach while lifeguards are on duty (1 to 6 pm from June through Labor Day). Pets are not allowed on the beach.

A small Lake Erie tributary splits the beach between two groins at the beach’s western end. The tributary also divides the park and land rented by the Avon Lake Boat Club for docking small boats and kayaks by city residents. The club’s trolley system for launching boats also crosses the beach.
