From spring cleaning to ongoing maintenance and upgrades, the CBBA is always striving to make Crystal Beach a wonderful community for our residents and their guests.

Each year, the dues paid by Crystal Beach residents go toward necessary repairs and maintenance of the community park areas. Please note that all park areas are carry in/carry out, no alcohol allowed, and dogs must be leashed at all times. For a full list of park rules and regulations, click here.

As direct rental services such as AirBNB become more popular, we encourage Crystal Beach residents who choose to rent out their cottages to communicate to your renters the rules for using the Crystal Beach parks and waterfront areas. With your help, we can continue to keep your Crystal Beach home a welcoming and attractive destination for your guests! Please click here for rental service information.

The Crystal Beach parks and waterfront are a major draw when listing a Crystal Beach home for sale. These community treasures are a unique heritage along Canandaigua Lake, and are often a top factor in the home buying decision. Realtors buying or selling homes in the Crystal Beach area can provide the best service for their clients by conveying accurate information on what addresses have Crystal Beach park access, yearly dues amounts, and more.

The CBBA also helps organize neighborhood events such as community yard sales, chicken BBQs, block parties, gravel distribution, community clean-up bins, and much more! Check out our Calendar of Events to see what’s coming up!

CBBA Park Information

Maiden Lane Waterfront Park – located at the base of Maiden Lane and Lake Dr. This park offers beautiful views of the lake, sunsets, and the Ring of Fire. This park features shaded green spaces, sandy sunny spots above the water, picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, and a swing set for kids.

Maiden Lane Picnic area – located between Maiden Lane and Mayflower Rd along Lake Dr. On July 21, 2013 a waterfront park in Crystal Beach at Maiden Lane was dedicated in memory of lifelong Crystal Beach resident Nicholas Murphy Jr with a ceremony attended by family, friends and area residents. “Nick” as he was known, was a great husband, father, family man and very active member of the community known by all. He dedicated a tremendous amount of time improving the community, parks and waterfront areas through fund raising and volunteer events and as a long term President of the Crystal Beach Betterment Association. One of his last efforts was to raise attention and funds to clear the overgrown land parcel at Maiden Lane and make it into a beautiful park area with a walking path, park benches and picnic tables.
