For over seven decades Arrow Park has been a place of meeting and celebration for all people that have "discovered" this quiet space in the foothills of the Catskills. Originally a place to escape from the city for the Schieffelin family during the early 1900s, Arrow Park (originally AROW Farm) grew from a small ethnic community to become a meeting place for people (literally thousands) of varied ethnic, cultural and political backgrounds. 

What all these people had in common was an appreciaion of nature, a sense of the dignity in daily life and an understanding that here was a place to enjoy both. The mainstay of Arrow Park is found in that practicality and simplicity. 

Arrow Park has always been a social and community-based meeting center. We have been told it is one of the best kept secrets of the Hudson Valley Region, a simple and rare venue in an age of ultra-modern and contemporary alternatives. We continue to serve an increasingly wide and varied group of organizations, clubs, organizations, and businesses. Whether planning a day-long meeting or corporate retreat, a special exhibition, an larger outdoor event or a memorable family occasion – we invite you to contact our staff for more information.
