Park Description: The entrance to Gedney Park can easily trick you into think it is only a playground, sledding hill, or 9/11 Memorial, you are quite mistaken. Its trails offer opportunities to walk your dog off leash, learn about Native Americans or ecology, and to have a hike through wetlands, woodlands, and edge environments. The trail to the 9/11 Memorial is handicapped accessible.  
Trails Overview: The trail system in Gedney Park surrounds several of the Town of New Castle’s ball fields. There are some relatively flat sections with gentle ups and downs and some short steep sections. In addition to three interpretive trails, there is a handicapped accessible paved path running from the parking lot to a fishing pier on the lake, and also a half-mile of unmarked trail with short access trails.
Directions: From the Taconic State Parkway, take the Route 100 Exit. Head north on Route 100 to the traffic light at a shopping center at Station Place (Route 133) and turn right. Continue for 0.5 mile and at the next intersection turn right where Route 133 joins Route 120. The entrance is to the right in 0.3 mile.
