Brought my nephews for all of our first times here and I have to say we will never return again. First of all the beach doesn't open until 11am and there was about 6-7 lifeguards there (no exaggeration, I counted. There was one with a staff shirt on and that's why I'm not sure if it's 6 or 7). They are all sitting at a picnic table and when the beach finally opens they close the dock, saying they'll open it in about an hour or so. Then one of my nephews likes to wear goggles and they told him he couldn't bring them in the water. They both wanted to use there tiny kick boards too and were also told we couldn't bring these in. There is garbage in the sand and parking lot. As stated in a previous comment maybe the lifeguards who were sitting at the table should get off their butts and clean it up. They were also using language that wasn't really appropriate for the fact that they are at a public beach with children everywhere.

The beach is a beautiful spot on the river but it is not taken care of properly. The beach needs a good raking, and the beach itself is slowly losing ground to the grasses that is making the beach smaller and smaller. If Glens Falls doesn't do something pretty soon there won't be a beach. Bring in more sand. Also, the parking lot is full of broken glass. Instead of having the lifeguards play cards all day they should be raking the beach down in the morning and cleaning up the parking lot. The bathrooms should be cleaned twice a day too. Every other municipality makes that part of the lifeguards job. They are not allowed to sit around and sunbathe all day without doing any work. There also has to be more signs for people to clean up after themselves. Twice while there I saw a dirty diaper left on the beach and a used woman's tampon. That is truly disgusting and unacceptable behavior from the public. Finally, the last two times I was there the beach was close (no lifeguards) with a chain across the entrance though people went around that to get to the beach. Once was on Father's Day this year and a cop kept showing up to tell everyone to keep out of the water. On a big holiday like that it is unacceptable for the beach to be closed. There was nothing on line or on the Glens Falls website either informing the public that the beach would be closed. That is unacceptable too. We pay enough in taxes where things like this shouldn't occur. This location is a gem but unless someone takes charge it will just get worse and worse.

The location on the map and the street view shown here are both incorrect . Haviland's Cove is located at the end of Bush Street in Glens Falls. It is accessible via a small bridge that crosses over the Feeder Canal.
