It’s now safe to hit the waters again at Bird Key Park.
Sarasota County Health Department officials lifted a “no swim” advisory for Bird Key Park west of the Ringling Causeway over the weekend.

Samples taken Friday showed levels that met both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and state recreational water standards.
