Waterfront Membership Register View Cart

Resident rates are the same as Early Bird rates in 2019!  The Recreation Department would like to help residents include waterfront activities as an integral part of their summer plans. Waterfront Memberships are offered to assist community members who would like to spend a great part of their summer at the beach! If you plan to spend many days at the beach, take swim lessons* or join the swim team*, a Waterfront Membership can decrease the cost of those activities!
*Subject to staff availability

Unlike most other Park swim areas Beekman Rec has a “Plake”! A “plake” combines the best part of a pool and the best part of a lake! 


  • Fresh water is continually drawn from a creek into the swim area

  • Like a pool, the water is filtered and chlorinated

  • The bottom of the plake is bulldozed and cleaned each spring with new stone and sand spread eliminating muck and weeds

  • Like a lake there is a sandy beach which the kids LOVE to build and play in

  • Each weekday there is a sand castle contest

  • We have CORCL boats to rent (can’t do that in a pool!)


COVID Guidelines as of 6/8/21
Based on the latest guidance from the Department of Health, fully vaccinated beach patrons do not need to wear a mask or socially distance. It is recommended by the CDC that unvaccinated patrons continue to wear a mask and be socially distanced in all locations EXCEPT the water.

There are still limiting regulations regarding campers that impact beach patrons. Our park serves campers until 4pm. ALL patrons must keep their distance from campers and camp areas. By purchasing a membership Beach Patrons agree to:
• Use the patron concession window not the camp window
• Follow the “yellow brick road” to the bathrooms to loop around the campers in the pavilion and wait outside the bathrooms if campers are inside
• Only use the playground and swings closest to the beach when camp is in session
• May not enter any areas of the park where campers are present
• Check-in is at the Concession Window
• To put on their own wristband before leaving the Concession Window

Weather & Staff Permitting Beach Hours

Safety Guidelines & Clarity
Our swimming area is created by water diverted from the Fishkill Creek. Once in our lake, the water is chlorinated. The Dutchess County Health Department regulates our swimming area and inspects it frequently. In order to comply with the Health Department , we have to maintain four feet of water clarity to open our deep sections.

Periodically, after heavy rains that stir up the creek supplying water to the swimming area, on heavy beach use days, or long dry spells, we may have to temporarily close our deep sections if we do not have four feet of water clarity. The safety of our patrons is our top priority. We apologize for any inconvenience closures may cause and ask for your patience and understanding.

Inclement Weather Beach Policy
  • The Beach is closed during inclement weather at the discretion of the staff: the beach, mini-golf, volleyball and all outdoor activities are suspended for 30 minutes whenever thunder is heard or lightening is seen; we ask patrons to seek shelter in the pavilion, or in their cars during these times
  • Group Swim lessons are cancelled during inclement weather
  • Beach closure will be posted as an “Alert” on the website home page and on the voice mail on the Park Manager’s phone, 223-6970
  • There are no refunds for inclement weather

Safety Drill Closures
The beach will be closed randomly each week for one half-hour so the lifeguards can perform safety drills. Watch your guards in action.
