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!
You can see more of the table by swiping your finger to the left/right. It’s better on a larger screen :)
