    This is a multi-facility park: picnicking areas; hiking/birding trails; walking/jogging paths; ski-lodge for winter; horse-riding; one part is used for flying radio-controlled miniature planes.
    There are recreational fields and kids playgrounds. Each section of the park has restroom facilities (some of which are handicap-access).
    Knollwood Lodge is rentable (see website for details) and has stove and refrigerator, fireplace and grill. Other picnicking areas are open and some have grills and tables but others require you to supply your own equipment.
    Attached to one end of the park is Springdale Farm: a demonstration farm and petting zoo.

    The park is rolling hills and forested areas; you pick the type of scenery that bests suits you.
    Just bring a blanket and layout in the sun or bring some friends and play frisbee.
    Birdwatching is fairly good in this park in the spring and fall but you must have proper footwear because the grounds where the birds are tend to be boggy.

    Not much to look at; an old house converted to a pizza shop.
    But they have great chicken wings with Garlic flavoring.
    Of course, they also have plenty of variety of pizzas with your choice of toppings. And now they offer calzones and submarine sandwiches too (made while you wait).

    They have delivery or you can call ahead and pick-up yourself.

    Favorite Dish: Garlic Chicken Wings. Even if you only get a side order with your pizza, you really should try these.

    There is no public transportation right in Adams Basin so you need a car to get around.

    The nearest commercial cars (rentals or taxis) are in the towns (5-10 miles away) of Brockport (Brockport Taxicab Company... 585-637-2840 or Enterprise Rental... 585-637-0260) or North Chili (Binici Taxi... 585-967-1965) or Ogden (Thrifty Rental... 585-352-3866).

    The easiest way to visit the area is by your own car.
    The best roads into the area are route 104 to the north or routes 531 and 31 to the south or route 36 which runs north-south right through the town. Secondary roads that travel through mostly farmland are: Ogden-Parma Road, Canal Road, Pine Hill Road.
    Gasoline is available right near the intersection of route 36 with route 31 and also with route 104. Because these stations do not do a volume business, you will spend a bit more per gallon than if you filled-up in a larger city.

    If you are still a smoker or if you only enjoy that occasional cigar, then you will like Mr. Nick's Cigar Store.
    They feature imported cigars from around the world and in prices that range from reasonable to outrageous.
    They now offer alchoholic beverages to wet your lips while you savor a good smoke.

Adams Basin Warnings and Dangers

    If i had not seen the actual crime data for Adams Basin I would not have believed the results.
    For the most part, Adams basin is as happily safe as any rural community. But the data shows a huge spike when it comes to theft. All the other crimes are well below average risk (in the very low category); but thefts are well above the average (in the risky category). The data did not clarify whether the thefts were shop-lifting or home break-ins.

    Having this data at hand, you might want to use a little extra caution about locking doors and keeping valuables in a safe place (trunk of the car usually works if the car is locked).

    Be smart and keep yourself safe on vacation.

The long course is 6300 grueling yards and the short course is 5500 yards.Greens fees...

    I have never played this venue but have several friends who have and will give you their assessment.The course is not too long (short tees 5500 yards, long tees 6400 yards) but 18 holes of walking up and down on this course really needs requires a cart.The greens are bent grass and well-maintained (although a bit fast in hot summers). The fairways...

    This is more of a fun thing to do or a place to just get some swing time exercise. It has 18-holes (in two sets of 9) but they are all par 3. They have clubs to rent in the pro-shop/snack-bar (which is quite small).It is a family-own and operated affair with pretty good maintenance on the course in mid-summer but a little shabby in spring and...

  • lift bridge is UP

    Sometimes the lift bridge at Washington Street is intentionally left up for extensive lengths of time during the summer to allow boats free travel on the canal.There have been times when the lift bridge was left up for weeks at a time.So it is best not to depend on getting across that bridge during the summer, but take another route. If you are...
