Community Park

Through much planning and hard work of many in the village, a reclaimed flood plain adjacent to to the Chenango River became the Port Dickinson Community Park. The park has turned out to be very popular and contains a three quarter mile walking trail along the perimeter along with an exercise

area, a pavilion with picnic tables and charcoal grills, two tennis courts, a basketball court, two hand ball courts, two ball fields, a soccer field and restroom facilities. The park is located in upper Port Dickinson, just north of the Municipal Hall, with one entrance/exit on Chenango Street.

In 2000, the park was rededicated to then Village Mayor John D. Wilfley and his late wife, Jeanne, making it known as the Port Dickinson Jeanne and John D, Wilfley Community Park.

In addition to the amenities mentioned above, there is an additional picnic area with picnic tables and charcoal grills embedded in a small grove of pines just to the south of the pavilion area.

The park is used frequently for birthday and graduation parties. Residents may reserve the pavilion or other picnic area, free of charge, and non-residents may make reservations, for a fee, by calling 607-771-8233 Mon – Fri, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Please note: this is a carry-in/carry-out park. There are no trash receptacles. 

It is Village Policy that Village Residents have until April 1st of each year to reserve the Pavilion, after that, non residents can reserve it.
