I am moving to Granite Springs in 3 weeks. I can't wait! I saw the Yorktown Heights Parks & Recreation book but, a lot of the deadlines have passed. I did not see any swimming listed? Is there a public or private pool that has swim lessons etc in the area?

Granite Springs is part of Somers so I don't think you can join any of the Yorktown Programs as you need to be a resident there. Unfortunately Somers does not have a public pool so I don't think they have any swim programs.

Parts of Granite Springs are in Yorktown, and lots of it is in the Yorktown school district. If you're in Yorktown schools, you can use Yorktown facilities, regardless of your address. There are 2 pools and a lake (in fact, I believe that the Yorktown lake is in Granite Springs). I know that the town offers swim classes in the winter (using pools in the schools), and I am almost positive that the town offers summer swimming classes too. Call the town recreation department to check. If not--or if you can't use Yorktown facilities--the boys and girls club in Mt. Kisco has swimming classes for kids all year. There are also a lot of health clubs around, but I'm not sure which ones have a pool.

The Yorktown schools all have "enrichment" programs that run until 6:00 or 6:30. I'm not sure what the annual fee is. We use it on an as-needed basis (if you sign up you can use it whenever you need) and it is $30 a day. The rate is definitely a lot cheaper if you use it consistently--but I'm not sure how much. At my son's school, most of the kids are there every day. They have use of the gym, computer room, and classrooms and kids can choose from different activities and independent projects, and can do their homework. It seems very well staffed and well organized. My son seems to enjoy it a lot when he goes.

The Parks & Rec probram also has Fall/Winter classes that I believe begin in Sept. I'm waiting for that to enroll my son.

Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone can help us. We are currently house hunting and are indecisive btwn SOmers and Yorktown schools. We love the fact that Yorktown has a swim team. Unfortunately, Somers does not. Anyway, I heard that students in SOmers schools can go to Yorktown and practice and compete with them. In general, does Yktwn schools offer more activities/sports? I hear that academically they are both pretty much equal.
