Gov. Hochul: Entry fees waived at 4 Hudson Valley state park swimming pools this summer
Cooling off this summer in New York is about to cost less.
Gov. Kathy Hochul says entry fees at all state parks swimming pools will be waived for the summer.
The move is part of the state’s “New York Swims” initiative making pools more accessible in communities.
Part of the $150 million investment also includes expanding swimming lessons in state parks.
Free sunscreen will also be made available at state parks all summer long. However, fees still apply at locations that charge for on-site parking.
The move affects four locations:
  • Bear Mountain State Park Pool – Bear Mountain
  • FDR State Park Pool – Yorktown
  • High Tor State Park Pool – New City
  • Rockland Lake State Park Pool – Valley Cottage
More information about the initiative and full list of locations that the move affects can be found on the NYS Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation website.
