Carnwath Farms

Purchased by the Town of Wappinger in 2000, Carnwath Farms is a 99 acre tapestry of the Mid-Hudson Valley. With picturesque views of the mighty river and at the farthest vantage, the Shawangunk Mountains, Carnwath Farms was a well hidden secret. Then, the Town officially dedicated Carnwath Farms June 28, 2003 as a home for the arts, history, culture, and leisure for its residents. Since that time, the Carnwath Estate has been increasingly used by the Town and its’ residents. From a magical Victorian Holiday Celebration in December of 2003, to the highly acclaimed Summer Theater Camp of 2007, Carnwath Farms has become an integral site for Recreation in the Town of Wappinger.

Carnwath Farms was notably placed on the map in May of 2005. Senator Hillary Clinton dedicated The Frances Reece Cultural Center and the Center’s first resident, The Sports Museum of Dutchess County.

The Recreation Commission and the Town anticipates great usage opportunities for Residents in the 2008 Recreation Year, including an Easter Celebration, an Independence Day Celebration, and a concert.

The park is currently open to the public for walking, hiking, and picnicking.  Pack some goodies or a bottle of wine and visit one of the Hudson Valley’s best kept secrets.
