Replacing industry with recreation and inspiration.

TARRYTOWN, Westchester County (5.2 acres) — Scenic Hudson partnered with the village, county and developer Natural RE/sources to move an 80-year-old asphalt plant and turn this prime waterfront site into a public park offering magnificent views stretching to the Manhattan skyline. Features include a riverside esplanade, grass terraces and lawns, and an “eco-corridor” filled with native plants. The parks is a segment of the county’s planned 51-mile RiverWalk and adjacent to Tarrytown’s Pierson Park.
