After receiving calls from concerned residents in the Town of Greece, Supervisor Bill Reilich spoke with Governor Cuomo’s office today regarding recreational activity on Town of Greece ponds. Because all ponds connect to Lake Ontario, the same speeding restrictions apply to the ponds as they do the lake. Therefore, anyone participating in recreational activities on the pond should keep in mind that it is a “No Wake” area.

Please see below for the boating speeds and restrictions for the Town of Greece.
