Whether you want to take a stroll, take your dog for a good run and swim, go for an extended hike or simply have a picnic, This is the place you want to goto enjoy nature and only a few miles from the city. Make sure you visit at different times of the year, because you won't believe the difference.

Although we do not live in the area, we have been to several family events at the Park. We have found the grounds to be well kept and the shelters to be clean. I don't know about the facility rental prices, but several of my family members are repeat renters. Nice areas too play games and plenty of room for... More

We were visiting in the area and brought our little Bichon Bolognese dog here to stretch and excercise. We used the Trillum Trail which seemed to be popular among dog walkers, probably because it is an easy walk over mostly level terrain, which was good for me. The park has a very natural beauty. We enjoyed the scenery; the trees... More

Great place to start the kids! There is also sledding (in designated areas) and snow shoeing here. Fishing (with your NYS license), Geo-caching and... More

I have only seen some of this park but plan on going and exploring more. I have fished there with my son. We didn't catch anything but it was a relaxing and pleasurable trip. Also nice to visit the hatchery and see what they have there.

I have been coming to this park since I was a little kid (so about 40years) I have been to numerous family reunions here and many trips just to check out the fish in the hatchery, and feed the ducks. There is always a new area to explore. You would never know by the entrance that this park is as... More

This is a great park for walking and, in the winter, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. There are a variety of short trails of varying difficulty. It has hilly terrain, meadows, wetlands & flower fields, plus an on-site fish hatchery. There is a kids' playground and a bunny slope with a tow-rope. A nice little creek runs through the park allowing... More

Powdermill is a nice park close in to the suburbs with a fair amount of space to roam. The park has a number of different trails that allow you to get out and away if you wish, although you can't go miles, you can get a nice break. There are some wetlands and there is a daffodil meadow that was... More

I don't live far, but rarely visit. The park is pretty busy..........fish hatchery is hit or miss. In the winter, there is a ski trail (bunny slope) cabins for rent......etc. I prefer a park with less traffic & less people so I can walk my dog off leash.

A great family place. There are tanks holding fish which are released in the spring, hiking trails, and creeks to fish if you so choose.
