New City, NY – Supervisor George Hoehmann announced today, the Town of Clarkstown is opening its first ever Winter Wonderland at the beautiful Congers Lake Memorial Park from December 14th to January 1st.    


Recreation Superintendent, Elaine Apfelbaum, and the Recreation Department constructed new LED light displays through a portion of the walking trail surrounding the Congers Community Center located at 6 Gilchrest Road, Congers.  Families will be able to stroll through the walkway and look at all the beautiful Christmas, Hanukkah, and other holiday light displays while listening to festive music.


Supervisor George Hoehmann said, “So many of us enjoy Congers Lake during the nice weather and now we can continue to enjoy the park during the holidays too.” 


All residents are invited to attend the grand opening of the Winter Wonderland on Thursday, December 14th at 6pm.  The Town will light the tree and turn on the LED light displays.  That night, there will also be a visit from Santa, horse drawn wagon rides, preschoolers caroling, s’mores making, and a musical performance by the popular children’s singer Matty Roxx.
