Lake Metroparks Fairport Harbor Beach Breakwall Swim Event

This short video features Cleveland Ohio Realtor Darren Burke from Launch Sales Team highlighting a Breakwall Open Water Swim event. It is free of cost and is held every Tuesday morning at 7:30a.m. during July and August at Fairport Harbor Beach, the Lake Metroparks offers a guided swim (followed by kayakers, stand-up paddleboards and a jetski with a safety sled). The swim is just under a 1/2 mile each way and draws a varied crowd. While not a beginners swimming event, there are swimmers of all ages as well as some college swimmers from Lake Erie College and some local triathlon swimmers who use the event as part of their training.

After the swim, a regular following of volunteers cook breakfast and have coffee and fellowship before heading off to work in the morning ($5.00 annual donation for the whole summer appreciated).

Fairport Harbor Beash is about 40 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio on Lake Erie. Lake Erie is the 13th largest body of water in the world and in this protected breakwall portion of the beach, makes for smooth water and fantastic open water swimming.

Fairport Harbor Beach opens at 9:30 am during the summer and is free for Fairport Harbor residents and $2.00 for residents of Lake County. During the summer season, Fairport Harbor beach offers kayak, paddleboard and windsurf rentals as well.

Darren Burke’s goal is to highlight some of the fantastic fun opportunities around Cleveland Ohio and promote this great city to the World. If you are moving to Cleveland Ohio or any of its suburbs, Darren can be a great resource for all sides of the city…and if you are moving to an area not in the Launch Sales Team market area…Darren will gladly refer you to a Realtor who will assist you and your family with your move to Cleveland area.
