Ossining’s Nelson Sitting Park (open in Google Maps) is a great park across the street from Park School and less than a block from the larger Nelson Park. It’s located in the historic Old Village neighborhood.
Nelson Sitting Park is a square park with 2 paved paths that form an X and meet in a raised middle, surrounded by lots of grass, trees and quite a few benches. Despite all the benches, we’d venture a guess that there’s much more playing than sitting done in this park. The playground is a popular spot, with a large structure with 2 slides, monkey bars, a bridge and a number of climbing features.
Parking is available on Spring St, Everett Ave, Edward St and Washington Ave, but if you’re going during a school day it’s likely the Everett Ave and Edward St spots could be full.
Playground including slides, climbing features, monkey bars and more.
Benches along the paved paths and at the playground.
