Here’s where to get your refreshing swimming or fishing fix in the 914. 

Croton Point Park

Perhaps one of Westchester’s most scenic spots for enjoying a swim, this 508-acre park tucked away in Croton-on-Hudson also features a fun miniature-aircraft airport, as well as ample hiking and even camping — a relative rarity in the county.

Blue Mountain Reservation

For those who love nothing more than a day spent fishing, Blue Mountain Reservation’s two sizeable, fauna-packed ponds make for a wonderful, yet lesser- known, hotspot where you can reel in the big one.
