Please please please fill out this survey guys! I know most of us already swim at Lake Anna regardless of the time of year, but at least we will be able to go down in large groups without risking the wrath of the park police if we all fill this survey out and change the policy that swimming is only allowed between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
Dear Virginia State Parks Customer:
We are asking for our customers’ input on possible changes to swimming operations at our lakefront parks. The request for input revolves around lakefront swimming and whether changing to unguarded, i.e. No Lifeguards, is practical in designated areas. Your answers will help parks management evaluate our customers' needs.
For the purposes of this survey, unguarded means that swimming would be allowed at your own risk and there would be no lifeguards. There would also not be a swimming fee like we have now at our guarded beaches. Unguarded swimming would also mean the removal of dive platforms and deep water swimming with the swimming area limited to an approximate 5 foot depth. Guarded swimming is what we offer now for a fee between Memorial Day and Labor Day for limited hours.
This survey does not apply to any of our swimming pools and there is no plan to make changes in the swimming policy for pools.
Please take the survey here (one survey allowed per computer) before 10 p.m. EDT on Monday, September 1, 2014. Thank you for your help.

Nice idea. Gotta take full advantage of the few lakes we have.
Done. Good call...would love to have more options.
