Parks of New York State
Adirondacks, Catskills & NYC’s Central Park
New York is known for its bustling metro areas, but what lies between these cities is just as important. The state is home famous outdoor attractions like Niagara Falls in western New York, Central Park in New York City, and the massive Adirondack Park in upstate New York.
Possibilities seem endless when traveling through New York’s largest nature preserve and park. Explore the six million acre Adirondack Park – home to the largest trail system in the country. Discover more than 3,000 lakes, 30,000 miles of rivers and streams, and 2,000 miles of hiking trail – plus 32 golf courses and picnic spots galore.
The second largest nature preserve, Catskill Park, is set in central New York – just northwest of New York City. Enjoy hiking trails taking you past scenic waterfalls, plus hunting, fishing, and plenty of rock climbing. Winter activities in Catskill Park include skiing, snowmobiling, tubing, sledding, and even ice climbing.
New York plays host to some great state parks, too. Try the famed golf courses at Bethpage State Park, or enjoy the roar of the falls over at Buckhorn Island State Park – less than 10 minutes from Niagara Falls.
Although Central Park is set in the country’s largest city, plenty of outdoor adventure can be found. Head to this famed Manhattan playground for boating, rock climbing, and trails for jogging, walking, skating, and more. Tennis and volleyball courts are available at Central Park, plus baseball fields, children’s playgrounds, and even a bird watching area known as The Ramble.
If you happen to thrive on outdoor recreation, New York’s parks are sure to impress.
