The Shadow Pines Property is approximately 212 acres in size and is located generally at the southwest of the Atlantic Avenue and Whalen Road intersection. The property is transected by Clark Road providing two distinct areas within the overall site, Shadow Pines North and Shadow Pines South. The northern portion occupies approximately 99 acres and the southern portion of the site 113 acres.

The Property is a unique open space asset, centered in the southwestern part of the town of Penfield. Formerly Shadow Pines Golf Course, the land was purchased by the Town of Penfield in 2018 for general municipal use, after the golf course had ceased operation in 2016. Voters had overwhelmingly approved the purchase via a public referendum in February of 2018. The vote indicated that residents desire that the land be preserved as recreational or natural open space.


After purchase, the Town Board appointed a committee of residents to provide recommendations for the best possible use of this property. The committee, known as the Shadow Pines Land Use Advisory Committee, compiled its recommendations in a final report in 2019. Recommendations took into account the recommendations of the Moratorium Committee, the 2020 Comprehensive Plan, residents, and Town staff. 

The engineering and landscape architecture firm BME Associates was hired to develop a Conceptual Master Plan for the Property based on recommendations of the Shadow Pines Land Use Advisory Committee.
