Yonkers, Westchester County (2 acres)—Scenic Hudson worked with the City of Yonkers and Westchester County to create this waterfront park that provides breathtaking views of the Palisades and features a restored tidal marsh and beach. Owned by the county, it's also home to the Beczak Environmental Education Center, which offers river-related displays and programs designed to create new stewards for the Hudson.
