Cutbacks at NY's Jones Beach

April 9, 2009 12:47:15 PM PDT
A swimming pool at Long Island's popular Jones Beach will be closed this summer due to the economy. The park's East Bathhouse pool was used last year by more than 10,000 people on an average weekend day.

State parks officials say a beach called West End 2 also will be closed. It had been available for swimming on weekends in recent summers.

That means swimmers will have to go elsewhere in Jones Beach park, and some may not get in when it's crowded.

Visitors at five other Long Island state parks will be turned away from some facilities or encounter reduced hours.
