If you have a non-athletic child, you can still find ways to bond with him or her through non-competitive physical activities. We've compiled a guide to parks, rinks, and other sports centers in Rockland County, NY, that offer healthy and fun activities - like hiking, skating, and table tennis - for all ages.

Rockland Lake State Park

Valley Cottage; (845) 268-3020

With a picturesque lake situated above the west bank of the Hudson, and offering picnic tables and grills, this is a fun way to get your nature fill. The park also offers boat rentals, a paved trail for biking, jogging, or walking, hiking trails, tennis courts and more.




YMCA Rockland County

Nyack; (845) 358-0245; www.rocklandymca.org

While your sporty kids may head straight for the pool or fitness center, the rest of the family can congregate in the game room, featuring ping-pong and foosball. Teens may use the Y's game room during after-school hours (3-6pm), and everyone is welcome on the weekends.




Sport-O-Rama Ice Rink

Monsey; (845) 356-3919; www.sportorama.com

Icy activities can be low-key for your non-competitive tykes: group lessons start at age 4, and recreational public skating hours are on offer, as are private rooms for birthday parties.
