Recreational Areas and Programs

Recreational Areas and Programs in the Town of Cortlandt

                Another very important part of a local government is it’s Recreation activities, sports programs, projects and special events for all age groups.

                I am very proud of all of the new amenities, recreation areas, programs and events we have initiated and developed over my thirty years as Cortlandt’s Town Supervisor.

Here is a list of some of these enjoyed by all:  A new Youth Center, an expanded Senior Center, many new playgrounds (one is handicapped accessible), softball fields with lights, a lacrosse field and a soccer field, a very popular dog park, and outdoor pavilions for gatherings and picnics.

                In addition, an outdoor roller hockey rink and a skate park are enjoyed by our youth, as well as, new basketball courts, tennis courts and a public boat launch on the Hudson River and a wonderful fitness trail and many other trails have been part of our achievements over the years.

                We have purchased open space areas over the years that have allowed us to expand our programs and to hold special events.  For example, an annual “Cortlandt Family Fun Day” with fireworks, many Halloween events, an Egg Hunt in the Spring, a 5K run and a “Winter Wonderland” in December each year.

                Summer outdoor concerts and movies are held on town property by the Hudson River free of charge to our residents.  Our seniors and our Veterans hold many wonderful ceremonies and events at our many park areas.  Little Leagues and other youth leagues use our fields, as well.

                We host a community garden and this year will construct pickleball courts, which are very popular. 

                We are very proud of our Charles Cook Pool and campus.  This property was an acquisition by the late Town Supervisor – Charles Cook – administration decades ago.

                At this recreational site, we have an expanded swimming pool and swimming lanes, a water spray park with many features, new tennis courts and a basketball court, as well as, a 9-hole miniature golf course at no charge to our residents.

                Summer camps enjoy this lovely area and this year we will dedicate a brand new State of the Art bathhouse and snack bar. All completed in my administration of 30 years.  I thank the current and past town boards for their support.

                Our fitness trail is on this campus as is Nor-West, which provides excellent services for individuals of all ages who are challenged and have special needs. I am especially proud of this important program.

                We also have a very successful Rowing Association (crew) started by Councilman Frank Farrell.

                Therefore, in conclusion, adding to our recreational amenities has been one of my priorities to benefit our families in our wonderful town.

Linda D. Puglisi, Town Supervisor
