Two Waukesha County beaches will no longer be staffed with lifeguards due to changing lifeguard staff ability.

Fox Brook Park and Menomonee Park will transition to 'Swim At Your Own Risk' beaches Aug. 15.

The beaches will be open from sunrise to sunset. Swimmers must stay within the shallow water sections designated by rope and buoys. Children must be supervised by adults at all times.
