Named after Chauncey Mitchell Depew, whose ancestors were among the original settlers of Peekskill, Depew Park. Neighbors make good use of the opportunities to walk and teens to congregate or make use of the ball fields and courts.
Once away from the frenzied activity of organized sports, the atmosphere within the park is relaxed. In spite of a 1973 City of Peekskill ordinance which states “No person shall ride a bicycle, tricycle, velocipede or motorcycle upon any walk or footpath, but persons may push such machines in single file along the same”, mountain bikers use the trails. Trails change frequently; they might not be as described.
