Park Passes

parkspasscollagev2Westchester County parks are open all year around. The $75 county park pass is valid for three years. Only Westchester County residents 12 years and older are eligible for this pass. If you are a senior citizen (age 60 or older) or disabled resident, your pass is valid for six years.

Park passes are only issued in person and upon presentation of a current driver's license or other valid photo ID, plus proof of county residency. Passes are non-transferrable and cannot be used by anyone but the holder. Lost passes will be replaced at the full fee.

Park passes can be purchased year round, but find out which locations are open all year and which are open seasonally before going to purchase your pass.

Your key to 18,000 acres of parkland and 50 plus recreational areas, your park pass will unlock the fun to:

  • all county-owned parks, pools and beaches where a park pass is required. For swimming, the pass admits the holder plus two adult guests and children under 12.
  • the six all-weather tennis courts at Tibbetts Brook Park in Yonkers.
  • the boat launch at Glen Island Park.

You'll also enjoy a treasure trove of discounts to:

  • golf at all six county-owned courses – for the park pass holder only. Guests of pass holders pay the full rate, and junior golfers pay junior rates and must be accompanied by an adult park pass holder.
  • parking – where parking is charged, park pass holders pay reduced rates, except Playland and the Westchester County Center.
  • camping, boat launching at George’s Island Park, at the Sportsman Center in Cortlandt.
