POTSDAM -- The joint Potsdam town and village Recreation Department has announced that beaches at Postwood and Sandstoner Park are now officially open for the summer.

The beaches at Sandstoner Park, on Pine Street, and Postwood Park, in Hannawa Falls, are open daily for public swimming from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day June 11 through Aug. 26.

Kayak rentals are available for two-hour sessions at $5 each, with life jackets and paddles supplied. A majority of the available kayaks are located at Postwood but arrangements can be made by calling 315-265-4030 for a larger group or to simply check availability on a specific day.

The new "Kayak Shack" will soon be featured near the waterfront at Postwood for easier access, and the Recreation Department is the process of purchasing additional equipment, including youth-sized kayaks and paddleboards.
