Cornell Botanic Gardens: Beebe Lake

Class of 1966 Beebe Beach

Ithaca, New York 14850, United States

Created By: Cornell Botanic Gardens


“Beebe Beach” was built up with the same dredged materials that created Werly Island in 1986 and is a popular place to enjoy the lake view and launch canoes and kayaks which you can rent through Cornell’s Outdoor Education program. This area is mowed once per year to encourage the growth of meadow wildflowers. Be sure to visit in early spring to enjoy the hundreds of blooming daffodils (shown here).

The Class of 66 generously funded the creation of Beebe Beach as their 25th Reunion project.
