This place has archery outdoor range, rifle range, shotgun and pistol ranges. It is conveniently located in Northern Westchester county, and reasonable to boot.

Lots for kids to do here, walking trails, watch the geese, run across the bridge and play on the playground. Also picnic tables for snacks.
