Overview

Description

Macedonia Brook State Park's exciting terrain has resulted from the slow wearing down of its hard rock formation base. The Blue Trail crosses Cobble Mountain and several other peaks, offering outstanding views of New York State's Catskills and Taconic Mountains. Numerous springs and streams in the park allow hikers to rinse off and fishermen and swimmers to enjoy their time in thepark, too.

Geography:

Macedonia Brook State Park consists of 2,300 acres and is located in Kent, CT. The park became the property of the State in 1918 through a gift from the White Memorial Foundation in Litchfield, CT. Many years later, the National Park Service established a Conservation Corps Camp at the park, and much site improvement work was accomplished.

Recreation:

Activities include stream fishing, camping, hiking, picnicking, field sports, cross-country skiing, and visiting the park's historic area.

Facilities:

Macedonia Brook State Park offers 51 wooded, meadow or brook-side campsites in a rustic setting. The camping season begins in mid-April and ends September 30. Additional park facilities include picnic shelters, drinking water, gravel parking, outhouses, and pay telephones.

The Links at Unionvale

Not only is the Links at Unionvale in LaGrangeville, N.Y., a remarkable golf course, but also the story of how it came about is equally as compelling. About 500 golfers from the Irish Golf Association and 16 other golf-clubs-without-real-estate had had enough of the hard-to-get-on, crowded, slow playing local golf courses, so they decided to build their own.
