To access the lake:
"The Rec Department and the crew at Silver Lake Beach have earned our vote for the outstanding program provided. You can swim under the watchful eyes of the trained Life Guard staff, read a book, or get snacks at the concession stand. The toilet facilities are clean, and the beach area is devoid of litter. Consistently. Yearly beach passes are available at a very reasonable price, so this is one of the great assets of Grafton! See you at the beach!" - Elaine and Al S.
"I want to say that the staff at the beach were all excellent this summer. I had a summer pass and enjoyed it very much. My grandson attended swim lessons with Nick and Dan, at 11:30. They were very good with all the kids, but I was very impressed with their patience and how well my grandson did in the class. He did not want to go to swim lessons and today he was very sad it was over. I really like how each class, had a lesson about water safety before going out in water. Thank you again for hiring a great summer staff." - Denise M.
"First year buying a pass to Silver Lake. I'm so impressed with the grounds. Soft sand, showers, snack bar, lifeguards, sun, shade. The water setup is genius with three sections of shallow water for kids to swim and play. The lifeguards are so attentive and enforce the rules with respect to the kids. I'm so glad I have a chance to experience it this year!" - Jennifer J.
"I couldn't be more thrilled, the lessons are wonderful! Thank you for all that you do! All of the staff at the lake are amazing and my kids are really getting so much out of class." - Deirdre R.
