First Phase Of Jenkins Beach Renovations Almost Complete
This April, we brought you the news that one popular beach destination in Eastern Maine, Jenkins Beach, was changing ownership, and would be closed to the public for a great deal of this summer season.
While ownership did change hands, it did not leave the Jenkins family, who have owned the beach since the 1940s.
Julie Jenkins purchased the beach with hopes of updating the space and said 2023 would be a transitional year as the space gets some much-needed upgrades and renovations.
According to the Jenkins Beach website:
"We are working with local agencies to open the beach for day-camp use for groups of folks who might not otherwise have access to such a unique and enriching experience. We are also looking at specific weekends where the beach will be open to the public. That said, the cleanup, construction, and rebuilding work we will be doing this year means that THERE WILL NOT BE GENERAL PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE BEACH ON MOST DAYS FOR THE SUMMER OF 2023."
Among some of the renovations being made this year, were significant upgrades to the camps themselves, which included structural work, new furniture, and the addition of Internet to the camps.
Jenkins says there will also be upgrades made to the beach itself, including landscaping projects.
Posting on their Facebook Page last week, it's pretty great to see how updated these camps are now.
