Coffin Pond Closed for 2019 Season

Due to a statewide shortage of certified lifeguards and after a thorough search of all resources to identify possible lifeguard candidates resulting in a very poor response we are in the unfortunate position to announce the closure of Coffin Pond for the 2019 season.

 

Although certain state park beaches are choosing to allow swimming at one’s own risk, this option is not feasible for Coffin Pond. See a recent news video from WCSH6 pertaining to the shortage situation at the following link; https://www.newscentermaine.com/article/news/local/maine-state-parks-desperate-for-lifeguards-raise-starting-pay-to-more-than-15-an-hour/97-9bbc0567-cc2c-4eb1-9f65-e9e5fdcf7e7a

 

Coffin pond is a facility that primarily caters to families with young children and as such permitting the facility to remain open without certified lifeguards to provide supervision is not an option. Lacking a filtration system, the pond also presents both water turbidity and visibility challenges making it that much more important to have trained certified lifeguards to oversee the public’s use of the facility.
