Beach Fires Update

The Parks and Forestry Division has removed all permanent fire rings that are normally placed along the north side of Deland Beach due to the high water the Sheboygan area is currently experiencing. Per city ordinance, there are no fires allowed outside of the permanent fire rings, which means there will be no fires allowed on the beach until the water recedes.

The Parks and Forestry Division would like to remind residents of several other ordinances that may impact how Independence Day is celebrated this year:

  • Unlike past years, there will be no fires allowed on the beaches for the 4th of July due to the cancellation of Sheboygan's official Independence Day activities.
  • Possession and consumption of alcohol is not allowed on any city beach, and without festival events at Deland Park there will be no alcohol allowed in the grass area to the south of the pier walkway.
  • Pets are not allowed on city beaches except for the beach at Lakeview Park. Leashed pets are allowed on the recreational trail along the lakefront, Lakeview Park, North Point Park (north of the northernmost jetty), and the North Point Overlook.

With these reminders, the Department of Public Works would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Independence Day celebration.
