Few things capture the allure of living in Lake Forest like time spent at its namesake harbor. Crisp blue horizons, refreshing lake breezes, and entertaining community events make Forest Park Beach the place to be on warm summer days, and the North Shore Cup is the perfect excuse for spending time at the shore.
Here’s what to expect from this year’s festivities taking place just two miles from our Lake Forest apartments:
2018 Annual Summer Regatta
Crisp sails and close races beckon spectators to enjoy this midwest youth sailing favorite. Scheduled for Friday, July 20th from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm, the North Shore Cup is Lake Forest Sailing‘s much-anticipated summer regatta. An annual favorite for 17 years, the event is open to junior sailors aged 8-18 and includes all youth sailing classes, including Optimist Green Fleet, Optimist Red/White/Blue, Lasers, and 420 Dinghies.
With racing throughout the day and fun activities on the shore, it’s an ideal way to celebrate the start of another balmy summer weekend in Lake Forest.
Forest Park Beach
Boasting 29 acres–including a large sandy beach and inviting green areas–Forest Park Beach is one of the City of Lake Forest’s crown jewels. Besides providing an excellent view of the North Shore Cup, Forest Park Beach offers city residents year-round recreation, including swimming, fishing, picnicking, etc., while seasonal amenities such as classes, camps, and water rentals (sailboat and kayak) make the park a premier destination for summertime fun. Concession stands are also available, including the Kemper Beverage Cart which offers beer and wine sales near the waterfront.
