MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. - Westchester County Park Passes will be available next month at Willson’s Waves in Mount Vernon.
The Park Pass is a photo identification card that provides admission to all county-owned parks, pools and beaches. Passes are available to any county resident age 12 and older who has either a New York State driver’s license or photo identification accompanied by proof of Westchester residency.
One park pass holder can bring two adults and children under age 12 into all county swimming facilities. Regular admission fees apply to each guest. The pass also entitles the holder to discounts on golf greens fees, pool and beach admission, parking fees at various parks and Playland admissions and season passes.
Park pass holders are entitled to purchase a Season Swim Pass, enabling them to swim at Glen Island Beach in New Rochelle, Willson’s Waves in Mount Vernon, “The Brook” at Tibbetts Brook Park in Yonkers and Saxon Woods Pool in White Plains for one low fee, eliminating the need to pay day-use admission.
