With so much to do in Westchester parks, you will never get bored!

Anyone who’s ever thought that there’s “nothing to do” will find the perfect antidote in Westchester’s parks. Play ball, take a swim or an invigorating hike, ride a roller coaster at Playland Park, browse stunning art collections or skate on a frozen pond or the indoor Playland Ice Casino in season – the possibilities are endless. We’ve even got a great selection of summer camps for children from age four through teenagers where they can play music, learn to play golf or basketball or learn to be stewards of the natural environment.
