This is one of my all-time favorite parks. It is the site of the "Battle of Newtown" which was fought in August of 1779 during the American Revolutionary War. The drive up the mountain is peaceful, and upon entering the park and taking a slight left you will be presented with a large granite memorial and fantastic views of the Chemung River Valley. It is often quiet there at the memorial and you can sit on the stairs and look out at the views for hours. There are also plaques along the rim of the site that explains what took place there. This park also has picnic stations, grills, playgrounds, and cabins to rent for camping. One of my favorite events held here are Civil War reenactments that include companies of men/women/children that "fight" a battle with horses, cannons, and muskets (bring your earplugs). The troops also setup a civil war village complete with a medic, armorer, blacksmith, etc. Enjoy the video from 2012!
