FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio — Swimming is one of the best activities around during the summer months in Northeast Ohio, but at one place, extra caution will be needed a couple days of the week.

Lake Metroparks announced on Sunday that the beach at Fairport Harbor Lakefront Park will be without lifeguards on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for the rest of the summer season due to a lack of life guards. Swimming is still allowed on those days, but it will be at your own risk.

In addition to the lack of lifeguards on those days, there will be no parking fee at the park either. Concessions and rentals will still be available from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.
