Visit Our Parks

Scenic Hudson has created or enhanced more than 60 parks, preserves and historic sites for public enjoyment—including some in communities that previously had little or no access to the river.

Scenic Hudson parks are free and open to the public all year round. We ask all park visitors to comply with our park rules for their safety and enjoyment. Dog owners should also consult our dog policy. And we ask any groups, businesses or organizations that wish to hold events in our parks to obtain a special event or group permit. Scenic Hudson is committed to providing unique recreational and educational experiences, and to offering accessible facilities, where possible and feasible due to terrain. Please also see our Policy on ADA Mobility at Scenic Hudson Parks and Preserves and our Policy for Geocaches at Scenic Hudson Parks and PreservesWe also count on park visitors to give us valuable feedback about the conditions in our parks. Use our Park Visitor Survey to let us know about your experience.
