Park / Beach Rules and Responsibilities

 

1) In all activities and use of the park and facilities, members are solely responsible for                   themselves, their children and their guests.  The members who reserve the park are                  accountable for the actions of their guests and must be present at the function.

2) There is a $25 non-refundable fee to reserve the park pavilion. Church and non-profit service organizations are free.  The fee is intended to support park maintenance.  Please contact Park Reservation Manager Christopher Grau at christopher.grau@gmail.com to reserve the park. Payment is due prior to the event and should be mailed to Bayshore Treasurer at P.O. Box 913, Seneca, SC 29679.

3) Guests are allowed to use park facilities only when accompanied by a host member or           members.  Do not invite friends when you cannot be there to greet them and let them in the the gate.  Parking on the street is prohibited.  Cars blocking driveways and park entrances are subject to towing at the owner's expense.

 

4) Park property and facilities may be used by groups of which a member is a part, but not to the exclusion of any or all other members of the Association.

 

5) The pavilion area to the left of the entrance will be reserved for groups. The beach and cove area to the right will always be available to members when the shelter area is reserved for group outings.

 

6) Any member(s) using the shelter area must clean up the area after use. We have no trash service.  Groups are responsible for removing their own trash and garbage. 

 

7) Dogs should not be allowed to venture into neighboring private properties.  Remember, the Oconee County Leash Law still applies in our park.

 

8)The reservations manager will maintain a calendar of requests for group use on this website on a first come, first served basis. The manager will verify that the property owner's dues are current and will send a tentative confirmation pending acknowledgement of the park rules.

 

9)The size of the group shall not be so great as to require parking outside the gate in the  street.  There is plenty of parking beyond the pavilion.  Cars blocking driveways and park  entrances are subject to towing at the owner's expense.

 

10) Excessive noise and loud music are not allowed at functions in the park area.  Please respect your neighbors who live near the park.

 

11) The sheriff's Office will routinely patrol the area and has permission to enter the park area.

 

12) Illegal substances are strictly prohibited at functions in the park area.

 

13) The park closes at 11:00 pm Sunday - Thursday and 12:00 midnight on the Friday and Saturday.  No one should be in the park area when it is closed.
