REMOVE YOUR BOAT, PLEASE!

REMOVE YOUR BOATS, PLEASE!

The boat launch area has gotten a bit raggedy looking, and public works

can’t work around the boats left helter skelter, many with standing water

(aka mosquito nurseries). We know it is convenient to leave your boat

near the water, but they’re becoming a nuisance.

We’re working on an option for more organized boat parking, but for now,

ALL BOATS NEED TO BE REMOVED.

Public works will be tagging boats with warnings. Any not removed within

a week will be removed by the City, and may be subject to storage fees if not

claimed by July 29, 2016.

Thanks,
Megan Pulsts

July 1st: NITA TOWNS DAY

July 1st: Juanita Towns Day

This past Tuesday evening Pine Lake City Council adopted a resolution honoring Juanita Towns by declaring today, July 1st, Juanita Towns Day. The declaration of Juanita Towns Day was the collective effort of Nita’s community through PLAIN, Nita’s church, and Nita’s city.

In her many decades as a resident of Pine Lake, Nita has served on City Council, and helped found the current Seniors And Law Enforcement Together (SALT) group, and cared for our city in countless ways. Her wisdom, perspective, and humor has provided great help and calm to our leadership (even as recently as yesterday).

If you do not know Nita personally, today is an opportunity to take a moment and reflect on what we each contribute to the lives of our neighbors.

If you do know Nita and want to know how best to celebrate her day: notes, flowers, brief visits, hilarious jokes, and a promise to vote for the SPLOST if it gets on the November ballot. No kidding.

2015 Pine Lake Park and Beach Rules

2015 Pine Lake Park and Beach Rules in a PDF Format for viewing and printing.

2015 Pine Lake Park and Beach Rules

Welcome to Pine Lake!  Please enjoy the park and beach, and keep them safe, clean and civil by following these simple rules. Anyone not following these rules may be asked to leave.

In some cases, a ticket may also be issued, with a fine to be paid.

 Keep It Safe!

  • Swim at your own risk. There is no lifeguard on duty.
  • Anyone 12 years & younger must be accompanied by an adult, whether on the playground, trails or beach.
  • Children 6 years & younger in the water must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • Swimming allowed only within the roped area. Adults may swim between the ropes and the berm by signing a waiver available at City Hall or from the Beach Manager.
  • No fires on the beach without a permit.
  • No pets allowed off-leash, in the lake, or on the beach at any time.
  • No glass containers allowed on the beach or in the park.

Keep It Clean!

  • Please clean up after your pets.
  • To promote health and lessen pollution in our lake, Pine Lake requires pet owners to pick up pet waste and dispose of it properly.
  • Please do not litter. Trash cans are provided for your convenience.

 Keep It Civil!

  • Smoking is NOT permitted on the beach.
  • Alcoholic beverage consumption and public drunkenness are not allowed at the park or beach; violators are subject to arrest and prosecution. Alcoholic beverages are only allowed during special and permitted events.
  • Be considerate of other people enjoying the park. Please, no loud music or swearing! City Ordinances prohibit noise from midnight to 7am.

 Protect Our Wildlife

  • Please do not feed the geese, ducks, and other birds  — it is not healthy to their digestive system, interrupts their migration patterns, and pollutes our lake.
  • Do not disturb the turtles or other wildlife in any way.
  • Fishing is allowed. Persons 16 years and older must have a valid state fishing license (available online).  “Catch-and-release” is strongly encouraged.

Hours of Operation

  • The Lake and all park areas (playground, Western Wetlands, Eastern Green Space, and all trails surrounding the lake) close at sunset, re-opening at dawn.
  • Swimming is allowed only from May through the first weekend in October. The lake is not tested for bacteria in other months.
