  • Pleasant place for off season walking and hiking. Nice kids playground. I would imagine its crowded in the summer with the huge pool on one end of the park. Also watch out for deer....yes deer in...  more »
  • A few weeks ago, I was in Scarsdale visiting my son. The fall leaves were so spectacular that I thought it would be fun to take a walk on a trail and found this place on T.A. Now I have lived in...  more »
  • This is a beautiful trail for running or a light hike. My husband and I run the 3 mile route every weekend in the warmer months. Beware of running on days after storms or heavy rain as the trees fall and can block your way. Late spring is the best time to go as the woods are a canopy of green and there are many beautiful plants and flowers in bloom. Also, there is no fee to park between Labor day and Memorial day. In the summer months, the trees give refreshing shade for runners and hikers. Saturday and Sunday mornings are busy, lots of dogs off-leash. A nice fresh air escape from the busier and more congested parts of Westchester.
  • This course is a great choice for the average golfer. Challenging without being overly penal. Condition was very good when I recently played and I was able to get a Saturday afternoon time with no trouble. Fee was $70 with cart for a non Westchester resident. There's a decent grill with outdoor seating and a full bar next to the large practice green with no chipping allowed. The driving range ($7 approx 40 balls) has lightweight balls which fly roughly half the normal distance. Parking is free and adequate. My only complaint is that the course is no longer on golf now, so no greens fee specials are available.
