Beach and Pool Fees Waived in Westchester County
Exciting news for Westchester residents! The County just announced that beach and pool fees will be waived for the season in response to inflation costs.
Starting on Tuesday, July 5, the fee waiver applies to Glen Island Beach in New Rochelle (only waived Monday through Thursday), Croton Point Beach in Croton-on-Hudson (only on the weekends), and Willson’s Woods in Mount Vernon, which is currently free. This also applies to the County’s pools such as Saxon Woods Pool in White Plains and Sprain Ridge and The Brook at Tibbetts in Yonkers.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “As costs continue to rise, the County is taking measures to ease the burden facing residents. Visiting pools and beaches during the summer should be a stress-fee experience, and I look forward to families coming out this summer to enjoy their time together.”
A proof of residency is required for the waiver, which lasts until Thursday, September 1st.
The pools and Glen Island Beach are open everyday from 11:00am-6:30pm. Croton Point Beach is open weekends only and Mondays, July 4 and Labor Day, Sept. 5. While the fees are waived, parking fees at Glen Island and The Brook at Tibbetts still apply.
