Season beach tokens are on sale now at the Morton Civic Center and all community centers. This year, the beach season will be expanded with Evanston’s five public swimming beaches opening on May 26.
The “preseason” token fees, which are in effect through June 8, are $24 for an Evanston or Skokie resident and $40 for a nonresident. The regular fee for a season beach token is $32 for an Evanston or Skokie resident and $56 for a nonresident.
Daily passes may be purchased at beach entrances. A daily pass is $6 for children ages 1-11 and $8 for people 12 years and older. Admission for children under one year is free.
Based on family size and income, Evanston residents may qualify for beach-token fee assistance and a free beach-token program. The outreach beach-pass program for Evanston teens is in place again this year with passes becoming available on May 21. More information is available at www.cityofevanston.org or by calling 3-1-1.
