The Pine Valley Central School is approximately 14 miles from the Village of Fredonia and 25 miles from the city of Jamestown. The area connects easily to metropolitan Buffalo and Erie by using the Southern Tier Expressway (Interstate 86/Rt. 17) and the New York State Thruway (I-90) which are close by. Thus numerous two and four institutions are quite accessible.
The two largest villages in the district are Cherry Creek
and South Dayton
. Both villages have populations of approximately 750 persons. The area is largely residential and heavily agricultural, although numerous small businesses and industries add to the economic base. The beautiful and vast countryside with nearby Alleghany State Park
, the largest in New York State, offers numerous year-round outdoor activities: hunting, fishing, hiking and camping. The area is especially noted for its fine recreational facilities with many excellent golf courses, ski resorts, state parks, and boating opportunities.
