Recreation Spotlight – December

It’s hard to believe we are wrapping up 2019 and another year with Pawling Recreation. There is so much that we’ve accomplished together but we still have tons to do! We try to listen as much as we can and support the needs in the community through valuable recreation services. We are constantly busy and buzzing with new ideas, trying to be a reflective tool of what you want. We encourage you to grow through social connections, activities, sports, clubs, parties, and resources right in your backyard.

One of the needs we are trying to tackle is flexible and affordable child care after school. We have good news! Beginning in January, we are trying out something new. We will now offer five days of Rec Clubs for grades K-8 during the after-school hours until 6:00p.m. each evening. Rec Clubs may either be attended on a drop-in, flexible basis OR as a low-cost monthly membership. If you are interested in themed days after school or a positive, welcoming space for your child, we provide that and more at Lakeside Park.

During Rec Clubs, parents have peace of mind and kids take control over their school days instead of being on their phones or having to figure things out on their own. Rec Clubs can now operate around parents’ busy schedules and fit any scheduling need. This may sound too good to be true, but we are determined to create a culture that celebrates our interests and challenges us to try new things.

With all of the indoor and outdoor resources that allow us to remain active (yes, even in the winter months!), we are excited to program more opportunities for your kids. Lakeside Park offers indoor and outdoor Gaga, a large auditorium space for group games, multipurpose areas for crafts or activities, trails, fields, open spaces, and more. With many building renovations complete and still more to come, our overall space is feeling better than ever and allows us to share a variety of experiences together!

It’s extremely important to us to do all of these things for an affordable rate and sibling discounts are available. If you are interested in joining Rec Clubs at Lakeside Park this January, our Recreation Office can be reached at 845-855-1131 and more information about all programming is available at We would love you to reach out, share with friends, and offer your feedback about Rec Clubs or anything else you’d like to see in 2020!
