The Broome County Department of Parks, Recreation and Youth Services has closed the Greenwood Park Beach due to an algae bloom.
The beach will remain closed until algae bloom subsides and the Broome County Health Department can test the water to safely reopen.
Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated as we go through this process of ensuring our visitors safety! Please check back for updates.
Beaches at Nathaniel Cole Park and Dorchester Park remain open!
Beach And Boathouse Will Reopen Memorial Day Weekend - Labor Day. The Park Remains Open, Year-Round.
Greenwood is the County's first and most diverse park. The well-maintained campground offers the entire family a quality camping experience. The lake's spring-fed waters provide refreshing swimming areas at the white sand beach, as well as great opportunities for anglers of all ages, from shore or from a rental boat. Relax in the shade or bask in the sun in the extensive picnic areas, or enjoy the peaceful beauty of the park's nature trail system. In winter, this year-round park offers ice-fishing, and miles of groomed cross-country ski trails and equipment rentals. Organized youth groups may secure a permit to use the Youth Group Camping Area, located on the northwest side of the lake.
