Verona Beach State Park
Historically, the Central Region of NYS Parks, including Verona Beach, has opened for the season Memorial Day weekend. This year will be no different, albeit with a slightly different operation plan due to COVID-19.
Verona Beach State Park will be limited to 50 percent capacity daily throughout the weekend. Once the capacity has been reached, vehicles will be stopped from entering and only be allowed to enter when another vehicle departs.
Visitors should come prepared for a brief stay (1 hour or less) as well as have a backup plan to recreate in the event they are turned away if the park has reached the 50 percent threshold. The beach will be open, with no swimming and shallow water wading in the marked section only. The Splash Pad will be closed. Picnic tables and picnicking around the beach area will not be available.
Groups will not be allowed to congregate on the beach and face coverings will be required around public buildings, including restrooms.
No concessions, water fountains or amenities (ball fields, volleyball courts or playgrounds) will be available.
NYS Parks and Verona Beach State Park welcomes back our patrons, but strongly urges them to follow the above plan, so that everyone in Central New York has an equal opportunity to enjoy our beautiful park system and Memorial Day weekend.
