Sometimes you just want to chill on a beach, lucky for us Cherry Creek State Park has sandy swim beaches along the north eastern shore of the reservoir.

Join DSA at the park’s Dixon Grove Shelter on Saturday June 15, 2024 from 11 pm to 3pm for a fun beach day social.

Bring your own drinks and food – there will be coolers of ice and charcoal available for grilling. Bring drinks and food for potluck style lunch.

Get ready to play – we’ll have a volleyball and net set up for games.

Relax on the beach – bring a chair, beach towel, or sun shelter and you can relax on the sandy beach.

Parking available at Dixon Grove Parking and Swim Beach Parking lots.
