Recreation Upgrades for Summer in Clarkstown

In Clarkstown, we are always committed to providing our residents with a variety of quality recreational programs, beautiful parks, and well-maintained facilities for residents to enjoy. In previous columns this summer, I’ve outlined our extensive summer concert series, camps, and three state-of-the-art pool facilities. I’m now delighted to announce another round of transformational upgrades to some of our recreational facilities.


Earlier this spring the Town Board and I announced we would be making another significant investment in upgrading our facilities. Complete overhauls of our basketball and tennis courts are underway, along with a resurfacing and restriping of our roller hockey rink. The renovations for all these facilities include new surfacing and striping. New backboards, rims, nets, and poles for every town-owned outdoor basketball court. The tennis courts will also receive new netting and poles. Once completed, every aspect of every town-owned outdoor basketball and tennis court in Clarkstown will be essentially brand new.


These renovations will make a positive impact on a large number of residents. In many of our parks, the basketball courts are consistently busy, particularly on weeknights and weekends. The age range of players varies widely, including younger kids, teens, and adults. Our tennis courts and roller hockey rink were also in need of significant repairs. Many of our residents have reached out regarding the aging equipment and we listened and responded.


The newly renovated basketball courts at Congers Lake Memorial Park are already open for play. Kings Park and Zukor are nearly complete, and work is in progress at Pascack, Germonds, and Central Nyack. Work at Tennyson will begin shortly.


The recent addition of 8 new pickleball courts at Zukor Park in New City has already been a tremendous success. The courts at Congers Lake had become so popular that we made the decision to invest in these additional courts in New City to accommodate the growing needs of this fun sport. Both facilities are being used extensively and the sport has really taken off here in Clarkstown, mirroring the growth the sport is seeing nationwide.


In addition to our new turf soccer field at Zukor, the town recently constructed a turf infield at the softball field at Germonds Park. The field was plagued with drainage issues that made the grass infield unplayable well after most of the other fields in the complex had dried out. Primarily used by the West Nyack Little League, the field was open far more frequently this spring and summer.



Future plans already in motion include the construction of a lower level grass field at the former
Rockland Country Day School site in Congers and a major renovation of the upper field, which
is in need of significant work. I will continue to work with our Town Council to make sure that Clarkstown has the proper facilities to accommodate the recreational needs of our residents and that we continue to provide a variety of recreational facilities for residents to come together, stay active, and have fun! I hope you enjoy the outdoors this summer at these new and revitalized facilities in
