If you’re from Goshen, you’re undoubtedly proud of our reputation as one of the most picturesque small towns in New York state. Named after a Biblical utopia, this stretch of lush green countryside is home to a tight-knit community of just under 14,000 people. Land O Goshen Park is directly named after the Biblical plot of land promised by Joseph to the Hebrews in Egypt. Our Goshen workers compensation lawyers love spending time in this beautiful park when the weather is nice. Some of our favorite things about Land O Goshen Park include:
Orange Heritage Trail
Land O Goshen Park is home to the Orange Heritage Trail, which is a paved rail trail that’s perfect for running, hiking, biking, or a simple casual stroll. This trail runs along the site of a former railroad, which provides some beautiful scenery during your outdoor activity of choice. We even like to visit this trail for a nice walk after a fresh snowfall, as the trees and wooded areas make for fantastic backdrops.
There are five baseball and softball fields in Land O Goshen Park, and for generations, both kids and adults have been playing baseball and softball here. During the summer, families come out to cheer on their kids as they compete with their neighbors for bragging rights in local Little League baseball and softball games. You can also sign up for recreational adult leagues here, which are a great way to relive your glory days, make new friends, and bond with your neighbors.
There’s also a basketball court here, which is very popular for pickup games during the spring, summer, and early fall. Organize a game of your own with family and friends, or simply show up and see if you can join in with some neighbors.
Finally, you can also find soccer fields an organized youth leagues here. Sports are always a good way to help your child develop a sense of camaraderie with other kids in the community, build teamwork skills, and most importantly, have fun.
Of course, Land O Goshen also has a nice playground where your kids can play. You’ll find all of the typical features you’d expect to find in any quality modern playground – a jungle gym with slides, climbing ladders, and ropes, a sandbox, and a swing set, all surrounded by mulch.
