From Robert Bertolacci:
Welcome to the Village of Rye Brook's Recreation Department website. Just click on the Parks and Recreation links for more information.
The Rye Brook Recreation Department is comprised of 2 Recreation Leaders, 1 Office Assistant, 1 Superintendent and 4 Parks staff. The recreation office is located inside of Village Hall at 938 King Street. The Recreation Department offers a wide variety of programs ranging from pre-k to senior citizen adults. The activities are published in the Recreation brochure tri-annually (August, December, March).
The Parks and Recreation Advisory Council meet on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 8:00 pm. There are 9 members of the community on the council. Their role is to evaluate current programs and address the needs of the community. These meetings are public and any residents are welcome to share their concerns, suggestions or comments.
Rye Brook Parks and Recreation operates many of its programs and/or special events in the Village Parks. These parks are also available to resident groups on a permit basis. The Village of Rye Brook has five main parks and utilizes Crawford Park and the school's facilities. Located at Pine Ridge Park are two Little League fields; four tennis courts, 2 1/2 basketball courts and a playground. Garibaldi Park offers two basketball courts, one tennis court, one Little League field and a playground. Rye Hills Park is a passive park located behind Crawford Park. It has a walking trail, a basketball court, game tables, a circle ring for storytelling, and a belvedere overlooking Long Island Sound. Harkness Park is located adjacent to the Blind Brook High School campus and houses the Villages final four tennis courts. Our newest facility is Rye Brook Athletic Fields which is located at 830 King Street. This facility was mostly funded through the Westchester County Legacy Program. Parking for this facility is at Blind Brook High School. This facility features an artifical turf football/soccer field, an artifical turf softball field, bathrooms, a walking path and a concession stand. Two other parks located in the Village are Magnolia and Rich Manor Park. These two parks are passive in nature.
Rye Brook Recreation looks forward to providing quality programming to its' residents. If you have any suggestions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (914) 939-7054. We hope that we are meeting your recreational needs and encourage you to join or visit one of our quality recreation programs.
