Green Lakes State Park is a great place to go for swimming, golfing and family fun all summer long. And the free movies are back every Saturday night starting Memorial Day Weekend.

Just a short trip west on Route 5, Green Lakes State Park in Fayettville is another CNY gem. The pristine lakes were formed by glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age, leaving a unique footprint on the landscape. There's also a world-class Robert Trent Jones-designed 18-hole golf course in the park. The free movies are an added bonus on Saturday nights. The films are shown on a huge inflatable screen outdoors. There's a campfire and s'mores at 8, with the movie starting at 9. Popcorn will also be available. Here's the full schedule:

  • Sing - 5/27/17
  • Tangled - 6/3/17
  • The BFG - 6/10/17
  • Brave - 6/17/17
  • Zootopia - 6/24/17
  • Ice Age: Collision Course - 7/1/17
