James Baird State Park has much to offer on its 590 acres. There is a playground as well as a sports complex where visitors can enjoy playing basketball, softball, tennis, and volleyball. Outdoor enthusiasts will find seven miles of scenic wooded trails ideal for hiking or, when there's snow, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. There are spacious open and wooded picnic areas and two picnic pavilions which can accommodate up to 300 people each (advance reservations required). The park also features a Robert Trent Jones designed 18-hole golf course and a full-service restaurant, Eighteen by Copolla's, open to the public. Find easy access to the park from either the Taconic State Parkway (1 mile north of Rt. 55) or via Freedom Road.
