Fall is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and the Rockefeller State Park Preserve in Pleasantville offers 1,800 acres of nature for everyone to enjoy.
The park is home to bodies of water, rolling hills, fields and 55 miles of carriage trails.
"It's basically a small city," says park manager Peter Iskenderian. "You don't have many parks with 55 miles of roads within them."
Iskenderian says the preserve was designed by the Rockefeller family to be experienced from a carriage, not walking. He says t's a completely different experience when you're seeing it from a carriage.
There's also a gallery in the park where visitors can enjoy all different types of art.
