No Boating, No Swimming Allowed at North Gateway Park Primary Pond

Signage for Safety


The City of Lamar has emphasized the swimming/boating restrictions for the first, western-most pond at North Gateway Park.

Public Swimming Area

Several weeks ago, the safety issue for the first pond was discussed by the Lamar City Council which issued a statement prohibiting anyone from getting on or in the water at the first pond.  It is for fishing only and any floatation device, whether a boat or inflatable raft is not allowed.  Signs have been posted to that effect encircling the pond.

The other, eastern-most ponds will allow boating and the city has a public swim area roped off with a beach adjacent to the shade pavilion.
