Round up the family and immerse them in nature at this 18-plus acre Ulster County preserve. Explore the flora and fauna and admire the animals that are staples of the Valley. Complete with a dozen gardens and 24 animal exhibits (the Park Zoo began in 1936 when a wild bear wandered onto the territory and never left), Forsyth has plenty of areas for you to spend an entire day outdoors.
