One of Westchester County’s largest towns, White Plains resembles a small city. The downtown has a mix of attractive and unattractive buildings, but most of the streets in the area have sidewalks and are runnable. The nicest section is heading east from downtown (use Main St.) to Tibbets Park and then toward Silver Lake, which has some nice fields.
Another good option is the Bronx River Pathway, a paved multi-use path paralleling the Bronx River Parkway that runs from the Hartsdale train station south of White Plains for 5.3 miles north to Kensico Dam, connecting the White Plains, North White Plains, and Valhalla train stations (run one-way and take the train back!). A good longer run is to use Fisher Ave./Walworth Ave., which is a several-mile straight shot headed south toward Scarsdale — do an out and back combining the Bronx River Pathway! At the eastern end of town, combine the running track at White Plains Middle School with the 1-mile White Plains Greenway.
Add-Ons: Nearby Scarsdale/Hartsdale feature some nice running options, including our route combining Harts’ Brook Park and Ridge Road Park.
