Little Troy Park has been keeping people cool for over 60 years!
LTP is a members-only swimming hole nestled on a quiet road in rural Charlton, NY. We offer a large, natural pond for swimming, a sandy beach, a playground and picnic area, and a lovely community of member families. There are swim lessons for children, safe wading for toddlers, and a lap swim area for all to enjoy. The pond is nearly an acre in size, large enough for everyone to have room to cool off. Our dedicated lifeguards are on duty to keep everyone safe, every day.
First opened in 1957, the Park is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day each summer. It is a Charlton institution!
The clean Alplauskill and fresh underground springs feed the pond. Local wildlife often stop by and visit! Members fondly remember the summer a Great Egret was spotted, the baby turtles kids have seen and Daisy the rescued duck who made the park its home in the early 1990s.
Little Troy Park is roughly 20 acres. The name can be confusing - we are not located in Troy, NY! The Park is named for a small, historic hamlet within Charlton - Slab Troy, which dates to the early 1800s.
