    not a bad spot to spend on a hot summers afternoon. Where do I park so I don’t get slammed with yet another parking ticket.

    • I believe there is a community center up the road you can park at and a dirt lot across from the public beach that is open to non-Sharon residents.

      Has anyone figured this out?

      • I believe there is a small (maybe 6 cars max) across the street from the non-resident public beach and a town building up the road (possibly a recreation center) that might have parking as well though you’d have a short walk (maybe 1/4 or 1/2 of a mile). I’ll have to check again when I’m back down that way.
