The free part of the Wilmette beach was downsized to expand the private (i.e. ""pay"") beach, so this year you WILL have to pay to go to the beach. And the police are patrolling pretty heavily and giving out tickets if you don't have a beach parking pass. Already got a ticket and it was only May! Skip it. more

amazing place to chill 5/25/2010

Don't be fooled. The location is amazing. It is right near Bhai Temple. Also they say that you need a wilmette beach pass, but that is ONLY if you want to go swim in the lake overlooked by a lifeguard. There is an area nearby that FREE and no such passes are required. Also there is ample street parking nearby that is for free. Amazing feilds to play or just chill on. The beach is clean and fun. Pros: amazing scenery Cons: can get crowded more
