4420 Lakeshore Rd., (Route #5), Athol Springs, NY 14010
Hamburg Town Park is located on the shore of Lake Erie and includes a bathing beach, boat launch and a year-round, fully equipped fitness center. In an October 1914 deed, the Locksley Park Company donated this land to the Town of Hamburg for its citizens recreational use.
The sandy beach swimming area is patrolled by certified lifeguards and is open from 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM from June 6th through Labor Day. A snack bar, changing rooms and rest rooms are available for the public. The Town Park/Beach is open to all Town of Hamburg Residents; park permit stickers must be purchased at the Hamburg Fitness Center, located in the building overlooking the beach.
BOAT LAUNCHAdjacent to the swimming area is a boat launch, available to all Town of Hamburg residents who have obtained a boat launch permit sticker. Permits can be purchased at the Hamburg Fitness Center located on the grounds of the Hamburg Town Park. Docks will be installed if lake levels are at an appropriate depth. If docks are not installed, boaters will be discouraged from launching large vessels. A signed waiver of liability is required when applying for a boat launch permit. In addition to the regular boat launch, a special area has been set up for windsurfing.
The Fitness Center, located on the upper level of the beach house, is open year round and offers an array of cardiovascular equipment, free weights, weight machines, and a separate aerobics room. The Fitness Center is staffed with certified personal trainers and aerobic instructors. Due to a covenant on the property deed, the facility is open to Town of Hamburg residents only. Resident discount cards are required for membership and are available on site. Registrants may choose from monthly or yearly membership options. For further information, please call the Fitness Center or the Recreation office.
NOTE: A valid beach sticker is required for parking.
