Breezy Point Beach temporarily closed

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – July 26, 2018 – The Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation announces Breezy Point Beach will be closed through Monday, July 30. Recent storms have left water conditions unsuitable for swimmers and storm debris must be cleaned up and removed.

“We are disappointed to close Breezy Point Beach temporarily, but the safety of our guests is of the utmost importance,” said Parks & Recreation Director Shannon Nazzal. “It’s our goal to have the beach reopened as soon as possible.”

The park is scheduled to reopen with normal operating hours Tuesday, July 31, pending successful testing by the Maryland Department of Health. Normal operating hours are 6 a.m. to dusk through Oct. 31, 2018. Individuals with current campground reservations will still have access to the campground while the public beach is closed.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
