NY: Westchester County-Katonah- Lasdon Park

If you’re looking for a low key walk in the park alone or with kids, Lasdon Park offers different paved areas to include explanations of the surrounding trees and plantings as well as interactive areas for the kids.

Tree Trail

Lasdon park is a former estate of a philanthropist that enjoyed birds and nature. The property was purchased by Westchester county and beautifully maintained for the public. It is open seven days a week until 4.

I have walked about half the park and can share that each of their destinations are interactive and have something to learn for kids or adults.

In the Fall of 2020 I went for a walk on the Tree Trail and the Chinese Pavilion trails.

In prior years, I went to a couple of their events where it appears year round they have a display of something seasonal to share in their greenhouse (for example rainforest in the spring, a train show for the holidays or orchids in the winter). It may be small but it is very well done.

I have also been in their memorial garden as well as their Dinosaur trail

I see they also have a scavenger hunt! I love those! I look forward to returning with kids to play and enjoy the dinosaur trail and have a little picnic (#ROLA)

If you have a young family, enjoy nature walks or just seek a place to be present and chase chipmunks, I recommend Lasdon Park. Close to Fairfield County Ct and a lovely day trip. Please know this is intended to be a quieter type of park so pets, bikes, frisbees, drones etc are not permitted. Link to site below the silly picture 🙂 Made ya look! 😉
