Wilcox Memorial Park
Wilcox Memorial Park, in the Town of Milan, tucked in northern Dutchess County is a delight to all who venture onto its 615 acres. Formerly the estate and farm of Mrs. Frederick P. Wilcox, its 18th century complex of farm buildings still stand today.
This family friendly park boasts not one but two small lakes at it’s center. Relax as you fish from shore or from a rented boat. Look for the park’s resident heron, one of many interesting birds in the park, as you go by in a rented paddle boat. Or practice your putting on the miniature golf course (available in season.) Swimming from Memorial Day to Labor Day on a sand beach with lifeguard facilities, a bathhouse and snack bar are located on the lower lake.
