Children's Day at the New Windsor Cantonment


Children's Day at the New Windsor Cantonment: A fun-filled day of family entertainment on Father’s Day from 1 – 4 PM. The always delightful menagerie of the Two by Two Animal Sanctuary will set up for the day. Celebrated magician Robert Olson performs as Mr. Bayly, an 18th century sleight of hand artist. No field day would be complete without games like blindman's bluff, field hockey and military drill with wooden muskets. In addition to the special programs and activities, the New Windsor Cantonment Visitor Center is open. A picnic grove is available and there is plenty of free parking. Also, be sure to visit Knox’s Headquarters, in nearby Vails Gate, and Washington’s Headquarters, in Newburgh, with its award-winning display of historical artifacts. New Windsor Cantonment State Historic Site is one of 35 historic sites within the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and one of 40 facilities administered by the Palisades Interstate Park Commission in New York and New Jersey.
