Crawford Park
A Gift to the Community
This 35.6-acre park was once the estate of Edna Everett Crawford. The Crawfords always opened their home to guests and allowed neighborhood children to play on their many fields. It was Mrs. Crawford's gracious wish that the Town of Rye maintain her property to allow many more generations to enjoy her hospitality.
