Saturday, December 5, 2020, 11:00AM - 5:00PM


Van Cortlandt Park,
New York, New York City,


Registration is required for this activity.


Leader's Choice! Come stroll the sylvan hiking paths about the ponds and gardens near Van Cortlandt Park Mansion. Hike will be mostly flat terrain with walking paths, moderate to easy pace for about 2 hours. Then, bring your own picnic lunch, or heat your hot cider on the grills in the spacious picnic area we've selected. There should be ample parking about the area's perimeter and in this neighborhood. Keep your picnic items there until after the hike. Safely share stories from the past year, and plot new adventures--safely--together. All social distancing, mask wearing, sanitizer and wipes will be constantly required and always available. Small group must be maintained at 10. Please do not register unless you fully are sure you will be with us. Or, if plans force you to cancel, please let us know asap so others waitlisted have time to assume your spot.
