Project Description: 

Join the Friends of FDR State Park as they build trails to connect to Baldwin Road in Yorktown Heights. Our first project is to improve a trail which connects the park to Viewland Drive by building a bike bypass, then build steps. Beginners are welcome but must be over 12 years old. 

Bring workgloves, water and snack. The park charges an entrance fee on weekends. People working on this project will need a entrance pass to get in free and a parking pass to park outside of a parking lot. 

Contact Jane Daniels for the entrance and parking passes,which you will need to print out and separate.
