I have been to Forsyth Nature Center countless times and it is always a delightful experience. Great for kids and families or, like me, to walk through and admire the natural settings,t he rose garden, or talk to the animals. A lovely and quiet oasis in Kingston.

This is a quiet and charming park for kids of all sizes and abilities. It has a wonderful playground that accomodates all children and ball fields. There is a petting zoo with various species, from reptile to mammal. It is located in a great area and is well maintained.

The new playground at Forsyth park is very nice. It is all plastic instead of wood and it's easier to get up and down the different levels. They also have added more animals to the sanctuary, they have white peacocks! They are even more beautiful then the normal color of peacocks!

My granddaughter loved feeding all the animals. There are signs telling you what they like. Then a very short walk to a great playground.

One of the first parks in the area that my children played at when we moved to the Hudson Valley, it is now where I take my granddaughter. The playground was upgraded 2-3 years ago and there is something for children between toddler and ages 7/8 to enjoy (swings, slides, climbing "wall"), etc. There is a pavilion for picnicking; tennis...

This is great for a family afternoon. There is a small zoo, a great play ground. There are tennis courts, a pavilion for picnics or family partys. There's also a lot of room for the kids to run around and tire themselves out. Take a blanket have a picnic and enjoy time with the kids.

This is a terrific park for children and adults. Children just love the petting zoo and other animal exhibits. Adults will find the entire park interesting as well. Worth a visit if you are in Kingston with children.
