Ossining Parks(The complete List)

The Town of Ossining, with over 130 acres of park land, has a long list of parks of many shapes, sizes and uses. Some are front and center in the community, while others are tucked away. It’s a rare Ossining resident who’s been to all of the parks below, and we hope to help change that.

On this page we have a map of all of Ossining’s parks, a table listing the parks and their amenities, and a section below with images and more info.

Each park has its own dedicated page as well. Good luck finding your next park outing!
