The Pace Environmental Center: A Westchester Treasure

You’ll find a historic slice of Westchester’s past preserved at The Pace Environmental Center, housed in the property’s original 18th century farmhouse, barn, and stable. This charming place is open to all and is especially a favorite destination of families with young children. Goats, chickens, sheep, and other farm animals are in residence, and Master Falconer James Eyring puts birds of prey through their paces to the delight of school children and others. Leading from the center is a small nature trail that parents and children can walk during spring and fall. It’s no surprise that Westchester Magazine chose the Environmental Center as a “Best Field Trip for Kids.”

Stay Fit at the Goldstein Fitness Center

The beautiful Ann and Alfred Goldstein Health, Fitness, and Recreation Center is open to local residents, and has 550 community memberships. Local police, fire, and ambulance personnel enjoy greatly reduced rates. The Pace Aquatics program is a favorite among local residents. It is said that most children in Pleasantville learned to swim in the Goldstein pool. The program employs many high school students as swim instructors and lifeguards, and is one of the few local programs to offer service training for lifeguard recertification.
Our modern indoor facility offers:
  • Three basketball courts, which convert for use as basketball or volleyball arenas, with seating for 2,400 spectators;
  • One-eighth mile track;
  • A full fitness center featuring state-of-the-art cardio machines;
  • An Olympic-size swimming pool;
  • Fitness classes, ranging from step aerobics and yoga to
  • Japanese swordsmanship and scuba diving.
