Sunday Heat Drives Silver Lake Bathing Crowd to Capacity

July 17, 2006

Both the 90 degree heat and high humidty drove crowds of Croton-on-Hudson residents and their guests to the Silver Lake Park beach to cool off in the wonderfully clean and refreshing waters of the 80 degree Croton River on Sunday, July 16, 2006.


In fact, the notion of swimming at Silver Lake Park was such a popular idea among locals that by 1:00 PM, the swimming area had reached its bathing capacity of 125. Subsequently, would-be bathers placed their names on a list and found a shady spot for about a 15 to 30 minute wait before getting a chance to take a dip.
