Ossining’s Ryder Park (open in Google Maps) is a large park in the Morningside Drive neighborhood. Located off Morningside Dr on Dynamite Rd (I’d like to know the story behind that name), Ryder is one of the largest parks in Ossining with 3 baseball/softball diamonds (1 large, 2 smaller), tennis courts, a small enclosed dog park, playground, pavilion with picnic tables and grills, basketball court at the pavilion, a challenge course and more.
The playground is fairly basic with swings and baby swings, 2 structures with 3 slides, and swinging and climbing features. You’ll have to keep an close eye on younger kids here.
Parking is available after you enter the park, in a few areas. Park down by the ball fields, at the playground or up at the pavilion.
