Glen Island Park

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Glen Island Park is one of the most widely used parks in the Westchester system, second in popularity only to Playland in Rye. The park has a unique, impeccably well-preserved feel to it. In 1879, Congressman John Starin bought the property and built it into a popular resort. Westchester County acquired the land in the early 1920s and much of the historical architecture remains.</p>
<p>Drive over the 1920s drawbridge and you'll enter the park, which has picnic areas (both reservable and open to the public), boat ramp, playgrounds, walkways and access to a beach that overlooks the Long Island Sound.</p>
