Celebrate Earth Day in and Around Your Castle Apartment

Posted by editor on 04/19/19

Earth Day is celebrated each year on April 22nd focusing on the environmental issues that the world currently faces. The first Earth Day occurred in 1970 making next year the 50th anniversary. In honor of this milestone, Earth Day Network is launching an ambitious set of goals to shape the future of 21st century environmentalism. Each year events happen globally reinforcing the importance of taking care of our Mother Earth! Luckily there are many things you can do to participate right here in Port Chester so close to your Castle home.

Although your Castle apartment comes with access to a luxurious rooftop terrace appointed with grills and a lounge, you may want to enjoy the coming of the warm weather by visiting a local park. The closest grounds to your Castle apartment is Columbus Park and a fabulous green spot to celebrate Earth Day!

Although not in Port Chester, still right at your backdoor with only a short ride from your luxurious Castle apartment, Greenwich Point Park allows you to experience the sand between your toes on a peninsula of the Long Island Sound. Help to keep it beautiful and clean for generations to come. It is one of the few parks in the area that allow you to take advantage of the spectacular water for many activities such as boating, fishing, sailboarding, sun bathing, and swimming or just some quiet contemplation as you take in the sights and smells of the waves and salt air. In conjunction with the Bruce Museum, The Seaside Center is a beachside museum located in the Floren Family Environmental Center at Innis Arden Cottage within the park. A few minutes from the park at the Bruce Museum, on Earth Day, a crafting session for children and their families, inspired by the museum’s collections and exhibitions.

For your little ones, an interactive visit to the Westchester Children’s Museum is so close by to your Castle apartment. On Friday, April 26, a special event to get your toddlers educated on this important initiative, “Exploring Play: It’s Earth Day!” Find out answers to many related questions. Why is planting so important? How do we take of our Earth? What is recycling? Create a picture representing land and water spaces resembling our earth!

In honor of Earth day there is a multi-community effort and the Town of Rye, Villages of Rye Brook and Port Chester have organized this year’s Community Clean Up Day for Saturday, May 11th taking place in the parks. Go Green!
