|Community and Recreational Activities|
The Department of Community & Recreation Services strives to provide programming to all Town of East Greenbush residents throughout the calendar year. With our wide variety of programs we hope to engage the community to come together and attend these events within the Town we all call home. By working with local businesses, we have the opportunity to hold annual events within our department the community has found fun and rewarding to attend. Our “After School Bowling” program is a staple amongst The East Greenbush Central School District and the children of our community. We also have our six week Summer Camp program held at The East Greenbush Town Park that has provided children the opportunity to spend their summers with friends and making life long memories. The Department holds Music in the Park every Tuesday in August in Onderdonk Park with live music and food vendors for residents to enjoy on a summer evening. In the fall we hold our Saturday in the Park festival where we organize a fun filled day for residents with live music, vendors of all varieties, food, and numerous activities for residents to enjoy while exploring our beautiful community. For more information on these events and others contact The Department of Community & Recreation Services at 518-477-4194.
