  • Had a great time. It was overcast and windy, a little chilly at times. The water was warm and clean and the lifeguards seemed to be paying attention even know the was not a lot of swimmers in the water. The water was a nice 73 degrees. The covered bridge was great. It was very nice to see how they built things back then. Bathrooms were neat and clean. Everything was stocked appropriately. All the employees either said hello or waived as the walked or drove by. Gave us a friendly family environment feeling. The playgrounds were up kept nicely and every thing worked as new. Our kids(and I) had a great time playing on them. Overall a very nice day trip for the family to get away and enjoy some of New York's finest. Looking forward to bringing the family back soon.
  • Glimmerglass park is a great place to bring the family for an afternoon, or a full day of fun. Clean restrooms, nice beach, lifeguards on duty, plenty if nice picnic tables on well- kept grounds. The park has become a family favorite.
