    Just know if you do not live in the area you are NOT WELCOME at the park. I came there to relax with my kids and i had literally 10 people screaming at me that I can’t come there. Basically what they did is, in order to keep people out of the park, they conjoined the parking of the public park with parking for a public school this way the parking lot is under department of education property and you need a permit to park there.
    The people there were very nasty to us, and we were definitely not welcome I would not recommend going there.
    We went to Airmont park at 59 Campbell Avenue, Suffern NY 10901 instead, and we had a great time.

    I live in the area and my kids go to the public school behind lions park, I just wanted to say that they changed lions park a lot and it’s not as fun anymore for the kids but I still enjoy going there with my kids and they have a carnival there around May and there are lots of concerts there in the summer!!

    The parking situation is shockingly deplorable and I say that as a resident of a neighboring town. It’s a public park however the parking is residents with permit only which renders anyone without a permit not welcomed since this is a non-walkable community
