Who We Are

The Friends of Lynn and Nahant Beach is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving Lynn Shore and Nahant Beach state parks and promoting their use through entertainment, educational, and environmental programs. Formed in 1990 by a group of concerned neighbors, the Friends has grown into an multifaceted organization with hundreds of members.


The Friends seek to ensure the proper maintenance of our beaches through a partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, which manages both Lynn and Nahant Beach Reservations and the beaches they contain, including Kings Beach in Lynn and Long Beach in Nahant.


The Friends mission is to promote the wise use and preservation of the waterfront from Lynn Beach Reservation to Nahant Beach Reservation through education, entertainment, and environmental programs.
