Wacky spring weather is no match for Batavians’ devotion to the Beach.
Hall Quarry Beach, that is. Batavia’s favorite summertime destination, the Quarry reopens on Saturday, May 28, to kick off Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial beginning of summer. It will feature all of the community’s favorite perks and amenities, in addition to swimming lessons and special summer events.
Season passes remain on sale at discounted, preseason rates through Friday, May 27. Last year’s season pass holders, who still have key fobs, may renew their passes online by logging into their Park District accounts. For those without season passes, daily admission is $10 for residents and $13 for nonresidents. Visit bataviaparks.org/harold-hall-quarry-beach for more information on passes and rates.
Summer makes a splash with Wacky Water Olympics, which is scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on June 13. Instead of simply splashing your siblings because you can, this event features relay races and fun splash contests. Fernando’s Street Kitchen will serve tasty treats the entire family can enjoy. Save the date — come hungry, leave happy!
Throughout the summer, sand volleyball courts will be open for spirited pick-up games. The zero-depth edge allows for easy access while the kids flume and drop slide provide for the coolest access.
The Quarry’s concession stand will be open as it was before the pandemic, featuring a host of hot and cold food and beverage options. Also returning this summer are bouncy inflatables for heightened beach time fun.
The Quarry, 400 S. Water St., will open daily at noon, but season pass holders may enter at 11:30 a.m. each day to beat the crowds. Closing time will be 6 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and 7 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Twilight hours, featuring a discounted rate of $4 for residents and $6 for nonresidents, are from 5-7 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
In the event of inclement weather, the Quarry will close. To check on these weather updates, visit the Rainout Line on our website. Residents and visitors may sign up for email and text alerts after downloading the free app.
