The Robert V. Riddell State Park, a gift from Patricia Riddell Kent and Steven Kent in memory of Patricia's father, Robert V. Riddell of Colliersville and her grandfather, Alton B. Riddell, offers more than 1,000 acres of fields and forested woodlands located in the Susquehanna River Valley.

The park is easily accessible, straddling I-88 in Otsego County, and is approximately 20 miles from Cooperstown, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The park offers a variety of family-friendly passive recreational opportunities. As part of an extensive statewide trail network, it is a preferred destination for hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Additional activities include bird-watching, snowshoeing and fishing.

Schenevus Creek, a Class A trout stream which leads to the Susquehanna River, crosses the north side of the park. This land was formerly cultivated for agricultural purposes. Hiking trails allow visitors to explore the wooded southern portion of the park.
