Beach Flagging System at Town Beaches

Visitors to Greenwich beaches need to be aware of important safety information. The Greenwich Parks and Recreation Department has adopted a beach flagging system at Greenwich Point and Byram Park, similar to the one used at State of Connecticut beaches. 

The flagging system was developed for shoreline swimming areas to denote where lifeguard supervision is in place, as all beach areas are not staffed with lifeguards at all times. 

The flag system is an additional method of communication with the public for maintaining water safety.


Green Flag - Open Swimming, lifeguard supervised swimming area

Yellow Flag - Warning, no lifeguard supervision swimming area

Red Flag – Closed to all swimming, or area temporarily unsafe
