Summer Days at Hale

Throughout June and August, Hale offers daily beach access, swimming, and boating that hearkens back to the lazy days of summers past. Reclaim simpler times and spend a morning or afternoon relaxing in the company of friends and neighbors.

What’s a Summer Day at Hale?

It starts the moment you turn onto Bruné Way. The world slips away as you drive up our tree-lined entrance and are greeted by a few guest ambassadors. They welcome you to Hale, verify your registration (or, space permitting, accept payment on site), and wave you into one of two parking lots.

As you gather your gear, Noanet Pond shimmers through the trees. A short walk leads you along its shore, past the Lifeguard Shack, and there it is: South Beach. Some call it the best beach in the world (okay, that’s us…but seriously, it’s amazing). Friends, families, and neighbors are spaced out across the sand. Some read. Others chat. A few nap. Kids splash in buoyed swimming areas and leap from docks as several Red Cross certified lifeguards look on. People borrow canoes, kayaks, rowboats, and Corcls from our fleet of watercraft and paddle around the pond. Just uphill, other folks picnic, play volleyball, and enjoy several playgrounds.

And that’s it. A simple, relaxing, unstructured morning or afternoon—one that’s only as busy as you make it.
