|Park Description:|| |
For years the undeveloped open space known as Woodlands was used by nearby residents comfortable in walking along unmarked trails. Owned by the Town of Yorktown in Westchester County, NY, the park is located on the east side of the Taconic Parkway and connects two pieces of Strang Boulevard. Hunter Brook, a trout stream which crosses the park was likely the reason that houses were not built and the land became parkland.
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.
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. The park is only accessible when the ball fields are being used.
*Note: Strang Boulevard also parallels the Taconic Parkway, but the official park entrance is at the end of Strang Boulevard by Route 132.
