There are over 180 parks, preserves, sanctuaries, and protected open space in Westchester County; they contain about 600 miles of trails including ones that are handicapped accessible. In addition there are other places to walk to keep fit and healthy.
Walkable Westchester promotes walking which is an inexpensive recreation and part of a healthy life style. It describes a wide variety of walking opportunities on paved paths, woods roads, dirt roads, or narrow woodland trails in urban, suburban, rural, and natural settings. Trails can go along the shore, in woodlands and fields, or near lakes, streams, vernal pools, and wetlands. Discover Westchester as you walk, hike, run, ride a horse, walk your dog, bike, cross country ski, or snowshoe.
Aside from property in and near Heritage Hills in Somers and two isolated tiny pockets elsewhere in the County, all homes in Westchester are within one mile of a park boundary or place to walk. Amazing, but even more so because of the County's proximity to New York City.
