Red Jacket Park swim area re-opens

Penn Yan’s Red Jacket Park swim area has been cleared by the New York State Department of Health to re-open today, July 10. Normal hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. However, actual hours will be posted at the park each day, since they can change due to weather and staffing issues.

The swimming beach closed after the DOH issued a Blue-green Algae Advisory for Red Jacket Park July 3. A blue-green algae bloom had been identified in the swim area that morning.

Indian Pines Park also remains open for all activities, including swimming.
