Just in time for summer, the long-awaited return of swimming at Stony Brook State Park!
The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation today announced that the stream-fed swimming pool at Stony Brook State Park in Steuben County will reopen for the season on June 22. The pool has been closed since the end of the 2009 season due to water quality and clarity issues and budget constraints.
"The long-awaited return of swimming at Stony Brook State Park restores a summertime tradition that area families have enjoyed and looked forward to since the 1930's," said Senator Tom O'Mara of Big Flats. "I appreciate the hard work of the park's staff to ensure the pool's reopening and to take all of the necessary, ongoing steps to ensure the quality of the swimming area."
