Swim in Lake Norman
Great news today for the Charlotte and Lake Norman region! The first public beach for Mecklenburg County will open Memorial Day weekend. Visitors to Lake Norman can now swim in the Lake. Unbelievably, most visitors to Lake Norman’s Exit 28 have not been able to swim. Since the 1970’s swimming was prohibited. But today a new swimming park -the first public beach has opened at Ramsey Creek Park Beach, located off Nantz Road in Cornelius, North Carolina.
About two years ago, I was at the The Lake Norman Visitors Center and overheard a conversation between volunteer ambassadors and some tourists. They were confused because they came to vacation on Lake Norman, they were staying at a local hotel, but couldn’t find a swimming beach!
Thankfully, those days are over and now we can share our beautiful Lake with visitors to Our State North Carolina. Come on in, the water’s fine!
