Fortin Park

The town's 95 acre park includes trails, water, wooded groves and fields. The town's largest park offers multiple uses that include picnics, hiking, cross-country skiing, fishing, softball, walking, soccer, and playground fun for the children.

Located just off from County Route 47 on Youngs Road in the town's east end, the park provides low impact recreation in a quiet setting for the whole family. It is bordered by the Susquehanna River and Charlotte Creeks, which offer tremendous fishing opportunities for the avid angler.

The park is popular as a location to watch the annual General Clinton Canoe Regatta on Memorial Day.

Otego Creek Access Site

County Route 9 - Glens Bridge Road, open April 1 to November 1

The town assumed ownership of the former Hemstreet Park located on the Otego Creek in 2004 and constructed a canoe/kayak launch with assistance from the state Habitat Stamp program and local volunteers.

The small park nestled on the bank of the Otego Creek offers picnicking and fishing from the bank and a place to launch a boat on the creek, which flows into the Susquehanna.
