Family-Friendly Things to Do in Stony Point & Nearby

Bear Mountain State Park

Route 9W North, Bear Mountain

Bear Mountain State Park is just over the Bear Mountain Bridge. It offers plenty to do, so you can make a day out of the trip. Picnic and enjoy the views as you eat near Hessian Lake. Kids will love the old-fashioned carousel, zoo, playground, and open spaces where they can run. Drive to Perkins Memorial Tower at the top of the mountain, where you’ll get a view of the New York City skyline. And if you’re here in the winter, take a spin on the ice-rink.

Haverstraw Bay Park

21 Gagan Road, West Haverstraw

You’ll find covered and uncovered picnic tables at this 27-acre park on the Hudson River waterfront. The park houses a large gazebo in the middle of the field. Watch the kids run around the three playgrounds (each geared toward different ages), fish at the freshwater pond, fly a kite on the field, or reflect at the Sept 11th Memorial & Patriot Garden.

Stony Point Battlefield 

44 Battlefield Road, Stony Point

History buffs get ready. A historic site, Stony Point Battlefield is the location of the 1779 Battle of Stony Point during the American Revolutionary War. Check the website for updated schedules to see if you can catch a living history re-enactment.

Stony Point Pancake Factory

32 S. Liberty Drive, Stony Point

This family restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They serve all the breakfast foods that you’d expect like pancakes, waffles, French toast and omelettes. But you’ll want to come here for its specialty pancakes, including varieties like banana Oreo, Nutella hazelnut, and white chocolate.

Haverstraw Brick Museum
