Beginning Thursday, October 23rd, Newfield Recreation will be bringing Zumba Gold to its adult community. Held weekly from 5:15 – 6:00 PM, the class will focus on low impact dance and exercise for those wishing to try out Zumba. Led by Cindy Hoffman, certified “Gold” instructor, the class will be led in moving to the oldies and the latest in easy going music (no rap or offensive lyrics). As Cindy has said, “Anyone still young at heart with the desire to move is welcome. Thin, heavy, young or old; all are welcome. Experience is not necessary.” Age recommendation is for age 14 through senior citizen.

For further information please contact Cindy Hoffman, Instructor, at 607-592-8699 or or Reid Hoskins, Recreation Director, at 220-3461 or


Welcome to the Town of Newfield Recreation Department.

We offer a variety of recreation opportunities for the community, and we are always looking to expand and improve our offerings.  Almost all of our recreation programs are held on Newfield Central School District grounds or inside the school’s facilities. Without the support from the school district many of our programs would not be possible. In any community, communication is key.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any ideas, questions or concerns by using the contact information at the bottom of this page.


Adult wellness programs will continue with open basketball in the HS Gym on Monday and Thursday evenings starting at 8 pm, beginning Sept. 8. and Adult open volleyball, beginning the 9th.  Tai Chi, a program of the Taoist Society of Ithaca, will be on Mondays and Wednesdays  in the elementary school beginning at 4:45 pm.  Yoga Dance with Deb DeLorenzo, also weekly, meets on Tuesdays in room 68 of the elementary school from 5:15-6:15 pm.  Deb may be reached at  and classes will begin 9/16.


More information on all these programs and answers to any recreation questions concerning our community may be found in our online catalog, link below; or by contacting the Recreation Department (information at the bottom of the page).

What Is Plant A Row for the Hungry (PAR)?

Launched in 1995 by the Garden Writers Association (GWA), Plant A Row for the Hungry is a people-helping-people program that encourages gardeners to grow a little extra and donate the produce to local soup kitchens and food pantries serving the homeless and hungry in their local communities. Newfield's PAR is being coordinated by the Newfield Food Hub and all produce grown and donated will be distributed to our community through the Newfield Food Pantry.

Harvesting Hope

PAR is a unique community-based program. It encourages individual and community gardeners to plant and donate an extra row of produce for the greater good in support of food relief organizations in neighborhoods, local districts, cities and counties nationwide.

There is no “typical” hungry person. Rather, he or she looks like all of us and is usually someone who, due to some unforeseen events, finds him/herself needing help.

The Newfield Food Pantry is often the only hope some people have to put food on the table for themselves and their children. By donating produce directly to the the Newfield Food Pantry, gardeners help those in need directly.
