Bob Shepard Highland Landing Park

Once home to industry, now a front row seat for admiring the Hudson River.

HIGHLAND, Ulster County (1.7 acres) — Scenic Hudson helped the Town of Lloyd purchase this former oil tank “farm,” now a local destination for relaxing on the riverfront, enjoying superb views and a refreshing breeze. The park links to the Walkway Loop Trail. For inquiries, call 845-224-4464.

Free and open year-round, sunrise to sunset.


The health and safety of park visitors remains one of our top priorities. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 endemic, all special events and group outings must be pre-approved. To coordinate one, please fill out this form and email Anthony Coneski.

Thanks for doing your part to protect yourself and others so we can continue to make Scenic Hudson parks and preserves available for all.
