The Forsyth Nature Center has been growing and changing for many years.

The Mission of the Forsyth Nature Center is “To foster the exploration of the natural world in and around our community through educational programming and contact with flora and fauna at an interpretive facility”

The Forsyth Nature Center has 24 animal exhibits and a dozen gardens that contain a variety of native flora found right here in the Hudson Valley.

 The Nature Center has been a fixture in the Kingston Community since 1936 and continues to grow and expand with the help of the community through its Friends of Forsyth Nature Center, a not for profit group and with the support of the City of Kingston Parks and Recreation Department.

Great place! My daughter and I spent the morning there, we bought our own carrots, kettuce and bananas for the aninani to munch on. My daughter loves this petting zoo and we are going back tomorrow morning. We really love Franklin the yellow colored cow, as my dauggdau calls him...The playground is amazing and big and clean. You can eat there, plenty of tables with shade, you can BBQ there as well. It is a really really nice spot! Oh and it was free, just bring your own food for the animals to munch on. Apples, spinach, lettuce, carrots and unsalted/popcorn are all suggestions. EmjEn your visit!

Great little zoo. Small, but beautiful animals. Free admission, so come check out out. Check the website for hours, they change between winter/summer season.
