Luckily it is a bit cooler along the Hudson River or if you are by a lake. Everyone in Beacon, Cold Spring, Fishkill, Glenham, and the surrounding areas are close to water. On the other side Newburgh, New Windsor, Vails Gate, Cornwall, ...from Highland to Highland Falls is also near either the River, a lake, or a pool.
Dr. Bernardez loves Long Dock Park and Fahnstock park also.
Pediatricians love to see your children outdoors playing and having fun, they love families enjoying the wonderful Hudson Valley be it in Dutchess County, Orange County, or Putnam. However they also want you to be careful and not have you or your children become unnecessary patients. With yearly school physicals, camp physicals, sports physicals along with allergy and asthma visits we are quite busy. So enjoy the Summer but don't overdo it.
Also please do not ever leave your children or your pets in a hot car. They both can become dangerously dehydrated VERY quickly. If it is uncomfortable for you, it is dangerous for them.
