Dorchester Park closed due to algae bloom


WHITNEY POINT, NY – One of the local beach areas is temporarily closed.

The lake at Dorchester Park closed yesterday morning due to an algae bloom.

The Broome County Parks Department will notify the public when swimming is able to be resumed.

A similar bloom closed the beach last summer as well.

Beaches at Cole and Greenwood Park remain open.
