New Windsor is perfectly placed to take advantage of everything fun and functional in Orange County; minutes from Metro-North’s Salisbury Mills-Cornwall station, with all Newburgh's amenities close at hand, on the road to and from everywhere in the Hudson Valley via the "five corners" in the hamlet of Vails Gate, residents can even go international from Stewart Airport just five miles away! The best of both worlds, rural and urban, are available in New Windsor NY.
Residents new to New Windsor will be able to find their groove quickly among the offerings of the town. The recreation department runs an impressive array of programs, and there are plenty of parks in town to accommodate them. There’s Little League and Cub Scouts, Girls’ Softball and Girl Scouts, summer camp and concerts, holiday gatherings and adult education. Seniors do activities—art, exercise, cards, bingo, knitting—Monday through Friday at Marasco Center.
One park, bordering the Hudson River, is Kowawese Unique Area at Plum Point Park, which offers boating, fishing and picnicking - the Hudson Highlands are on display from a blanket on beach. The park's interpretive center (which is fully equipped with a kitchen and deck) can be rented for parties.
