Following three-day closure, park will be back for normal enjoyment by the public

SAUGERTIES (Ulster County) — Scenic Hudson’s popular Falling Waters Preserve will close for three days—Thursday, June 8, through Saturday, June 10—for maintenance near the park’s trailhead and parking area.

The closing is for public safety while contractors demolish a nearby structure. Scenic Hudson and general contractor Washington Estates Transport, Inc. planned the demolition work to minimize inconvenience and to occur on as few days as possible.
