With about 75% of the Town owned or to be owned by the Palisades Interstate Park and other
governments or environmental organizations, Tuxedo offers tranquility and access to open space unmatched in the New York Metropolitan area. The Appalachian Trail traverses the northern part of town and is connected to a number of other hiking trails in the Bear Mountain Harriman and Sterling Forest State Parks.
In addition to its lakes, hills and forests, Tuxedo and Tuxedo
Park boast well-sited buildings of first-rate architects, especially from the late 19th and
early 20th Centuries. Many of the Hamlet area buildings--both
residential and commercial, were designed by such noted architects as Bruce Price, James Brown
Lord, and Walker & Gilette.
A 60,000 item library in a newly renovated facility is the focal point for a number of programs for children.
The Town Recreation Department sponsors a summer program for children in Kindergarten up through eighth grade. Recreational areas include Quarry Field with a baseball diamond and running track adjacent to Tuxedo Park; Tichy Field with a tennis court in Laurel Ridge; The Lucky Recreation Center in the Hamlet; and a playground, as well as a baseball diamond and soccer field, in Eagle Valley.
The Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center provides winter sports, while fishing, hunting, hiking and other passive recreation is available in the new Sterling Forest State Park. Swimming, boating, fishing and hunting are attractions of the Bear Mountain Harriman State Park.
Neighborhood shopping and services are available in the Hamlet and Southfields. There are four churches in Tuxedo, two in the Hamlet, one in Southfields, and one in Eagle Valley.
