As part of theĀ Winnetka Waterfront 2030 plan, bluff restoration efforts and staircase construction is currently underway. This is scheduled to be complete late June. While construction of the staircase and bluff restoration are underway, a new traffic pattern will be in place. This includes a three foot wide temporary walkway along the beach access road. The lower lot will be open for resident parking. The upper parking lot will be available to both residents and non-residents. Staff will be present to direct and maintain a safe traffic flow.


The lower parking lot at Tower Road Beach is reserved for Winnetka residents who have a valid Village of Winnetka parking permit or Winnetka Park District parking permit. Non-residents may utilize the upper parking lot and do not need a permit.
