This place has archery outdoor range, rifle range, shotgun and pistol ranges. It is conveniently located in Northern Westchester county, and reasonable to boot.

Lots for kids to do here, walking trails, watch the geese, run across the bridge and play on the playground. Also picnic tables for snacks.

According to info from web search rock hounds would love this place, having boulders from the ice age. Not much to do other then enjoy the terrain, the birds and BBQs. Have to say the cleanest public bathrooms I've ever seen. The lake no longer...More
