This is a nice little park although not generally a destination spot but a good place to stop along the North County Trailway or while in town. There are a few benches, playground, basketball court, grassy area, and across the street is the Trailside Cafe if you're looking for a snack stop during your walk. New to the park is a monument paying tribute to the Battle of Pines Bridge, and the diverse 1st Rhode Island Regiment under Col. Christopher Greene, who died defending the Croton River crossing from British loyalists in 1781. The 8-foot-tall monument depicts Greene fighting alongside African-American and Native American soldiers. Yorktown hosts several community gatherings during the year that incorporate the Railroad Park like the San Gennero Festival. The park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

There really isn't much to see but it's a nice little park in the middle of town to perhaps just sit on the benches and relax.

This park in the center of Yorktown is simply a good place to sit if your walking around town.
The center of the park is an old Putnam Railroad Line Station. Sadly it is not restored enough to enter.
The old building is an iconic looking small railroad station.
The park straddles the bike/walk path of the old Put. Line that runs through Westchester County.
Their are various events that happen during the year in and around the park which can be found on
the Yorktown NY website. All the local DMV tests are given in front of the park.
Happy sitting.

Very good place to go for a walk alone or with your family. Good for bike lovers as well. This park leads to other trails in the area.
