People flock to Delta Lake to beat the heat
TOWN OF WESTERN — With city pools closed for the season and Tuesday’s temperatures reaching 90 in Rome, area residents are flocking to Lake Delta State Park this week to beat the heat.
“We knew the humidity was coming and school was starting,” explained Judy Scharpach of Westmoreland, “so we thought we’d go to the beach.”
Judy had come to the lake with her grandchildren and their mother, Kristen Tillson of Holland Patent.
“We’d go to (the swimming pool in) Trenton Town Park,” said Kristen, but that had shut down for the season on Aug. 19.
“When they were little, this was our beach of choice — it’s a nice place here,” Judy chimed in.
Elsewhere on the beach, 4-year-old Isla Amodio of New Hartford was enjoying the weather. “It’s our second time at Lake Delta,” explained Isla’s mother, Melissa.
Park officials estimated near 150 attendees total on Tuesday, adding that beach attendance tends to drop off toward the
end of the season.
Visitors to Lake Delta State Park can swim through Labor Day, Sept. 3.
The beach is open to swimmers from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
There is a $7 entry fee to the park for cars, though officials said those arriving after 6 p.m. are admitted freel of charge
