The Village of Pomona was formed on February 3, 1967 to fulfill the vision of a close-knit community vested in their rural roots. The Village is located in Rockland County, New York, with half of the Village in the Town of Haverstraw and the other half in the Town of Ramapo. The Village has about 3,000 residents.
The Village founders chose a name that reflects these rural roots. In Roman mythology, Pomona is the goddess of fruit trees, gardens and orchards.
Pomona has three Village parks, and is near many other parks, including Harriman State Park. Harriman State Park is the second-largest park in the New York State park system, with 31 lakes and reservoirs, 200 miles of hiking trails, miles of streams and scenic roads, and scores of wildlife species, vistas and vantage points.

Our Free Yoga Classes!
No matter what your fitness level or degree of flexibility or how coordinated or uncoordinated you may be, yoga can work for you. Through the practice of asanas (postures) and breath control, yoga works all of the muscle groups, stimulates the internal systems, and improves strength, flexibility, and balance, all the while calming the mind, reducing stress, and enhancing your inner and outer poise. A full body workout!
Men and women enjoy yoga and its benefits-come and see for yourself. Our new spring yoga session starts on Tuesday evening, April 1st. It is a one-hour class that runs from 7:15 to 8:15 p.m.
Instructor Charlese Randolph will guide you through the postures whether you are a beginner or have taken yoga previously.
Wear something comfortable, nothing too tight or too loose, and take the class in bare feet. Bring a mat, and if you wish, a water bottle.
The class is free for village residents. If class is not full, a non-resident may join in for $10.
