|Park Description:|| |
Wedged between two sections of Strang Boulevard, the park seems to have a split personality. For years the undeveloped open space known as Woodlands was used by nearby residents comfortable in walking along unmarked trails. When you enter from Strang Boulevard off Route 132, the playing fields are the dominant feature. But concealed behind the kiosk at the end of the parking lot are alluring trails and the answer to the question, “How do you get to that (pedestrian) bridge over the Taconic?”
The Legacy projects of Westchester County provided funding for the town to build additional ball fields. The park was renamed to recognize the existance of the fields and the project.
|Trails Overview:|| |
Taking note of the umarked trails in Woodlands, the New York-New Jersy Trail Conference and Westchester Mountain Biking Association embarked on a joint project with the Town of Yorkown in 2010. Volunteers built new trails, blazed all of them, and built a bridge across Hunter Brook. The trails connect to the Legacy Fields and to the pedestrian bridge over the Taconic.
|Directions:||From Taconic State Parkway, take the Route 202 exit and turn east. Go 0.7 mile to the traffic light at Route 132 and turn left. Go 1.4 miles and turn left onto Strang Boulevard.* Woodlands Legacy Fields Park is located at the end of road. *Note: Strang Boulevard also parallels the Taconic Parkway, but the official park entrance is at the end of Strang Boulevard by Route 132. No public transportation|
