This lovely marina in the suburbs has a small harbor beach with calm water (don’t expect waves), swan sightings, fishing on a pier, crabs & clams, fun spray showers and lots of greenspace. Swimming allowed when lifeguards on duty (10 am-5 pm).

The large playground between the beach and the parking lot has lots of inventive equipment – a great way to brush off the sand before getting in the car. The Village of Mamaroneck Fire Department’s Carnival takes over the park in the evenings in late June/early July.
