Parks, Recreation & Forestry

The Ledgeview Park and Recreation Department works to provide quality spaces, places and opportunities for our residents to play, exercise, recreate, and enjoy nature.  Ledgeview incorporates over 90 acres of programmed park space in 7 different parks, 1.8 miles of paved recreation trails, over 70 acres of conservancy and greenspace, and an 18 hole public golf course.  Athletic facilities include two state of the art, turf baseball diamonds, a softball/little league field, and 5 multi-purpose athletic fields.  In addition to park and recreation amenities, the Park and Recreation Department oversees the urban forestry program which encompasses the planting, maintenance, care and protection of our tree population on town-owned properties.  The Park and Recreation Department receives guidance and recommendations from the Park, Recreation and Forestry Committee, a group of 7 Ledgeview residents who volunteer their time to ensure the preservation of our natural amenities for the enjoyment, betterment, and health of our community.

LEDGEVIEW PARKS STORY MAP

Take a virtual tour of Ledgeview Parks to see the unique amenities each park, trail, or bicycle loop has to offer.

 

LEDGEVIEW LOOPS

A dominant environmental feature of the Town is the Niagara escarpment, a limestone ridge that runs roughly north and south through the middle of the Town. Locally this feature is known as the “Ledge.” With mostly low-trafficked roads, scenic beauty, and topography, Ledgeview was the perfect place to create bike routes known as “loops” to provide an avenue for residents and visitors to explore and enjoy the nature-scape of Ledgeview by bicycle. Hence the Ledgeview Bike Loops Program. Get out and bike!

 

LEDGEVIEW GOLF COURSE

The Town purchased Ledgeview Golf Course in 2019 in order to preserve development rights and to keep the beautiful viewshed as part of Ledgeview’s heritage in perpetuity. Although the land is Town-owned, the business is operated by a third party. The vision is to bring winter activity programming to the golf course, but for now let’s support the business by booking tee times, joining leagues, taking lessons, or simply enjoying a delicious meal with friends in the clubhouse. There’s something for everyone.

 

WINTER TRAILS AT LEDGEVIEW GOLF COURSE

Fat bike and cross country ski trails are available for public use at Ledgeview Golf Course. Trails are maintained by Ledgeview Trail Club. Donations are accepted for grooming and maintenance equipment.  Check trail status at Ledgeview Trails Club or Ledgeview Trails Club on Facebook.

 

MEMORIAL & SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

The Memorial & Sponsorship program allows residents to honor those who have touched their lives with a permanent commemorative gift. If there’s someone that you’d like to remember, to honor, or to simply make a donation to help support our vision for functional, safe, and aesthetically pleasing park facilities, visit this page for sponsorship opportunities.
