Schodack's Park is a source of pride and pleasure to residents and visitors.
There's a new brochure with information about park use and maps of the walking trails.
The park was created during the 1990s by volunteers (including crews from the Highway Department, who are recognized on a plaque on the bridge below) and with support from town government and local business. Located on Poyneer Road, the Town Park is just one of several such sites for relaxation, recreation and nature walks. Birdwatchers find the park an exceptional viewing area for species ranging from the occasional bald eagle to common eastern forest- and open-space birds.
The Town Park offers varied settings, from meadows to streamside trails, about a mile from Schodack Town Hall. There is also a state park, with a boat launch, picnic facilities and other amenities at Schodack Island (links), on the east banks of the Hudson River (the entrance is from Route 9-J in the Schodack Landing area).
Other recreational and athletic facilities
Athletic facilities include tennis courts at the Schodack Central School Complex and the Castleton Elementary School while fans can watch professional and college sports at many venues, year-round, in the Capital Region. Fishermen find abundant catches in trout streams and the Hudson River; hunters are often welcome on farmland and woodlots throughout the town. (Please, obtain the landowner's permission first.)
