Lake DeForest Day is a family-friendly day of paddling and appreciating beautiful Lake DeForest in New City, NY. Join us for a Family Walk and 5K Fun Run over the causeway at Lake DeForest! The event is a fundraiser for Hackensack Riverkeeper and Keep Rockland Beautiful. The day will feature the always-entertaining Supervisor’s Race and several open paddle sessions. Whether you’re kayaking (your boat or ours!), walking, or running, we look forward to seeing you at Lake DeForest on June 25th!
