CHEMUNG COUNTY - The Park Station Waterfront is scheduled to open on Saturday, June 16th.  The Waterfront will be open on a daily basis from 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. through Labor Day, weather permitting.

Every effort is made to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming area staffed with lifeguards.  Please be aware that if the safety of the swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity.  We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little or no advance notice.
