The Town of New Windsor All Inclusive Plaground at Kristi Babcock Memorial Park is is open! We had to cancel our Grand Opening on October 17th because of a scheduling conflict with some of our officials that we really want to be there but the playground is open now for all to play! We hope everyone enjoys it! 


One of the most fun Town events that we put on in New Windsor every year is the Halloween Party which takes place this year on Friday October 26th starting at 6pm at Kristi Babcock Memorial Park. Some of the returning fan favorites that we have again are the Haunted Hay Ride, the Haunted Trail, and the costume parade with four different age groups where the entrants all have a chance to win a prize. The Town of New Windsor Special Events Committee is very pleased to add two new things to the Halloween Party this year. The first is a live show from Mad Science that will start at 6:30pm. The 30 minute show will be sure to leave everyone amazed and in the Halloween Spirit. Then starting at 7:30pm we will be showing an outdoor movie on the huge screen. The movie that we will be showing is the Halloween classic “Hocus Pocus.” This will be our second outdoor movie event with our first ever taking place on September 15th. It was such a success that we decided to purchase our own inflatable screen, and big projector so we can do these outdoor movies more often. It will be a great fun filled family night so don’t miss out. For ore information please click HERE.

Tip: How To Keep Good Programs From Being Canceled

Please do not wait until the last minute to register for programs. We know that lives are busy and finding time to do everything we need to do is tough. Also financies could also be tight which is another reason for not registering for programs until the last minute. But unfortuntely waiting until the last minute to register for programs has a detrimental effect and could cause the program to be canceled or at least modified if there is insufficient registration. All programs require a high level of coordination, often including facility scheduling, staffing, volunteer recruitment for coaches, and the purchasing of equipment and supplies for the program. If you want to sign up for a program please register as soon as possible to keep the program from being canceled. Thank you for your consideration.
