The Westchester County Parks system spans nearly 18,000 acres and offers some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. There are nearly 50 recreational areas where you can hike, swim, bicycle, fish, skate and picnic, or just spend quiet time in the outdoors. Each weekend a wide range of educational, recreational, entertainment and sporting events are offered for people of all ages and interests. County Parks has the distinction of being the first County in New York State to become accredited by the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).
