For many, Memorial Day Weekend marks the official start to summer, so why not start thinking about your summer swimming spot!

Freedom Lake in LaGrange will open for business beginning May 25 with their Summer Kick-Off Party, and then will be open 11am-7pm weekends only until their daily operations begin on June 10th. They'll also be offering hours on Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day!

Although Freedom Lake is located in LaGrange, residents of Beekman, East Fishkill, Pleasant Valley, Poughkeepsie, Union Vale and Wappinger are eligible to purchase daily admission or season passes.  Proof of residency is required for all admission types, in the form of a photo ID and tax OR utility bill. You can find more information through their facebook page here.

Freedom Lake offers great fun for Hudson Valley residents, with a water slide that was just updated this year, new docks, diving boards, water slides for children, and plenty outside of the water too: volleyball court, sand beach, tether ball, swings, and concessions as well.

Will Freedom Lake be part of your summer plans?
