<p>This summertime favorite features a sandy beach beside a chlorinated and filtered pool built into the Arlington Reservoir, which straddles the Arlington-Lexington line on the north end of town. The beach is open from 10 a.m. to dusk, late June 22 to late August and is supervised by certified life guards.</p> <p>Beach-goers must buy a tag to enter the facility and present proof of residency to avoid paying an out-of-town fee. Summer passes are also available, and swimming lessons are provided for a fee. For full information, go to the Recreation Department's <a href="">website</a>.</p> <p>The beach park also has a small sandy playground with swings and slides. Bikes, pets, ball playing, throwing discs and toys are prohibited in the beach area. Children under 12 must have adult supervision.</p> <p>The beach is also on a 0.9-mile path that circles the reservoir and connects with Hurd Field, a park off Drake Road with two baseball diamonds and a soccer field, and Rindge Park, a shady Lexington park with a small playground overlooking the reservoir.</p>
