The Town bought Shadow Pines in 2018 after Penfield voters approved the purchase of the property which was previously home to Shadow Pines Golf Club. Over the past several years, the Town has been crafting a master plan for the 212 acres of land with input from the community.

“Our goal is to show off Shadow Pines and the opportunities it affords our community,” said Penfield Town Supervisor Marie Cinti. “We look forward to further developing the property for all to enjoy.”
