Restore Ryal Side's beach at Obear Park

This petition had 1,256 supporters

Obear Park is not only Ryal Side's park, it is also Ryal Side's beach. Our beach has been neglected for too long and mother nature has taken a toll on our only access to our lovely river. There is very little sand actually left on the "beach" and it is littered with rocks, glass and mud. To access the "beach" you have to jump off a 1-3 foot drop. There is no easy access for all Ryal Siders, young and old, who would like to take a dip on a warm summer day. 

We are asking that the beach at Obear Park be restored and brought back to a sandy oasis that can be enjoyed for years to come. We understand that this is not as easy as just dumping a load of sand and walking away. We understand that this involves many departments and many regulations. But, the City of Beverly allowed this beach to get to this level of disgrace, so the City of Beverly needs to be willing to make up for those number of years that the beach has been neglected. 

The people are willing to help. Just tell us what to do so our families will have a nice place to swim and play again.

Every other waterfront neighborhood in Beverly has a beach which is maintained by the City, it is our turn. Ryal Side pride starts with us.
