At Centennial Beach and Johnson’s Beach, where lifeguards on duty, signs are posted behind each lifeguard chair to communicate when lifeguards are on duty. Swim buoy lines and drop-off markers are anchored out from the beach. The swim buoy lines mark the designated swimming areas recommended for swimmers.
