Glen Island Beach and the entire Glen Island Park are set to reopen Saturday, July 3, 10 a.m. after being closed to the public over year.  The Park was utilized as a COVID-19 drive-thru testing site since March 2020. 

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “This is another sign that we are winning the war against COVID-19.  It was here in New Rochelle that the first case of COVID-19 in the Westchester was detected, at the time the drive-through testing was what we needed but now what we need is for our residents to have their park back.  I am thrilled that Glen Island will be open for the summer.  I’m thrilled that families will once again enjoy the cool breeze off the sound and that kids will splash in the water.”

Westchester County Parks Commissioner Kathy O’Connor said: “We are so excited to reopen Glen Island in time for residents to enjoy it during the summer months. I’m proud of the staff for all of the hard work put into getting Glen Island back into shape.”

The beach will be open daily from Saturday, July 3 through Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 6, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. with the last entry at 6 p.m. Westchester County residency required for admission with either County Park Pass or a valid New York State driver's license with a Westchester county address.

Group picnicking by reservation will resume later in July. For information or questions, call: (914) 231-4575.

Parking is $5 with Park Pass, $10 without Park Pass, daily through Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 6, then weekends only.

Glen Island Park is located at Weyman Avenue, New Rochelle, NY 10805.
