Summer Sun at New Castle's Parks

Looking for outdoor fun during the summer months?  Check out the Town of New Castle’s nine parks, which offer hiking trails, fishing, playgrounds, baseball, lacrosse and other recreational sports.

New Castle’s largest park is the 167-acre Whipporwill Park, located on Whipporwill Road, a mile south of Bedford Road, which offers fishing and hiking.

The most active park is Gedney Park, where there are playgrounds, tennis, lacrosse, soccer, baseball, fishing in their man made pond, three hiking trails as well as grills and covered picnic areas for summer festivities. Gedney Park even has ice skating and sledding in the winter, New Castle’s only park to offer those activities. You can even bring your dog to Gedney Park, as long as they’re on a leash. There must be a reason why Gedney Park was voted “My favorite New Castle Park” by residents.

Millwood Park, a seven-acre park located on Route 100, has a special distinction as the only New Castle Park to have two tennis courts, along with a Little League baseball and a softball field. Dogs, on a leash, are always welcome at Millwood Park.

The 13.5 acre- Amsterdam Park, located on Hoag Cross Road between Pine Bridge Road and Route 134, along with Gedney, are the only two parks to offer soccer and lacrosse fields.

There are also some of New Castle’s larger parks like Warburg Park, Burden Preserve and Sunny Ridge Preserve which offer exclusively hiking trails. Two, save Burden Preserve, also offer fishing at their ponds as well.
