NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- There’s a new way to access some of New Rochelle’s most popular parks this season! The Department of Parks and Recreation has replaced Omnicards with Park Passports for parking entry into waterfront parks, including Hudson Park, Five Islands Park, Davenport Park and Neptune Park.

Park Passports can be obtained at the Parks and Recreation Office at 515 North Avenue. Photo proof of identification must be shown, as well as two permanent documents or items that confirm name or address (driver's license, vehicle registration, utility bill, lease, tax statement, or rent receipt.)

“The Parks Passport will streamline entry into our most popular parks,” noted Commissioner Bill Zimmermann. “We invite everyone to come down to enjoy our beautiful waterfront facilities.” The Park Passport is valid for one year from date of purchase. Senior resident Omnicard passes will continue to be honored.

Passport fees are as follows:

Adult Resident (ages 14-61) - $40

Senior Resident (ages 62 and older) valid for five years-$40

Non Resident- $80

Special for this summer, enjoy free access to Hudson Park Beach! The beach will open Memorial Day weekend for weekends through June 25 and then open daily from June 26 through Labor Day. For non-Passport holders, daily parking fees will apply, $5 for residents and $10 for non-residents.
