Located in the Joseph G. Caputo Community Center, the Ossining Recreation and Parks Department offers a wide range of programs for all ages—from young children to seniors—and serves approximately 30,000 people each year. The Recreation Superintendent manages the programming in six town-owned parks and eight Village parks, along with the oversight of the Old Croton Aqueduct, totaling more than 183 acres with a variety of amenities for residents and visitors. 

Prior to accepting his new position in Ossining, Christopher Soi was the Assistant Superintendent for the New Castle Recreation and Parks Department. There he was responsible for year-round recreation programs; a summer day camp with more than 250 campers; and the oversight of nine town-owned parks, a community center, and an arts center.



Soi also previously served as Recreation Supervisor for the Briarcliff Manor Recreation and Parks Department; Lead Instructor at the New York City Outward Bound Educational Center; and Therapeutic Recreation Program Coordinator at Green Chimneys Children Services, a residential treatment center serving behaviorally challenged youth. 

“We are pleased and excited to welcome Christopher as Ossining’s new Superintendent of Recreation,” said Village Manager Richard Leins. “His considerable experience in the field will make him an asset to our vibrant community. We look forward to his fresh perspective and insight.”

Certified as a Park and Recreation Professional and Youth Sports Administrator by the National Recreation and Parks Association and National Association of Youth Sports respectively, Soi is a member of the Westchester Recreation and Parks Society, New York State Recreation and Parks Society, and the National Recreation and Parks Association. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Brown University and a Master of Science in Recreation and Leisure Studies from the State University of New York at Cortland.
