Plattsburgh State Softball 2018 Skills Clinic
The Plattsburgh State Softball program invites all local youth softball players to join us for a winter skills clinic. We will have 3 different sessions, all focusing on different aspects of the game. Our coaching staff and team will be teaching the fundamentals with drills and games. We will work with all participants to make sure they walk away with more softball knowledge and skills than they walked in with. This is a great opportunity to build these skills right before softball season!

Peru is improving again! We're building a skating rink/basketball court at M.J. Sullivan Park! 
In the fall of 2017, the Town would like to expand the facilities at Sullivan Park and use it as a multi-seasonal area. The M.J. Sullivan Park was established in 1967, improvements were made in 2001, but this underdeveloped park is screaming for some upgrades!  Installing tarmac this fall,installation of an rink liner and flooding the area in the winter will enable it to be used for ice skating and hockey.   A changing hut and seating areas will also be installed. This would also include installing basketball hoops at each end and painting court lines for basketball games and shooting practice in the spring/summer of 2018.

This skating rink/basketball court will provide additional areas of exercise opportunity for all residents of the Town of Peru regardless of gender, age or ability. Located within the Peru hamlet, there is plenty of parking and the sidewalk system and the recently constructed Walking Trail provides ideal accessibility for all. 

For every dollar that is donated, New York State Health Foundation will match up to $10,000! 

The start up of this project will require borrowing from the Town savings until the donations and match monies are obtained.

The Little Ausable River Trail

The Town of Peru has built a chip seal paved trail to offer residents and visitors an opportunity to enjoy a variety of healthy outdoor activities within a beautiful and varied natural environment. The trail will also protect and interpret the important historic sites of Heyworth/Mason Park and a section of the D&H rail line, both instrumental to the Towns development.

The trailhead is in Heyworth/Mason Park just off Mason Hill Rd in the hamlet of Peru.
With parking, benches, picnic tables, historic interpretive signage and a beautiful 1836 stone mill, its a great place to start your adventure.  The trail covers 1.25 miles, from Heyworth/Mason Park to the entrance to Sullivan Park on Route 22.  You can then use the sidewalk to connect back to the trailhead, for a 2.25 mile loop.
(see map)

Its an interesting trip with massive cottonwoods, a planted pine forest, open fields
and the river. It seems to be an excellent birding site as well.  We now have several benches installed. Enjoy!
