It's hard to believe that this beautiful shoreline park was once the site of a riverfront asphalt plant.
TARRYTOWN, Westchester County (5.2 acres)—Scenic Hudson partnered with the village, county and developer Natural RE/sources to turn this longtime industrial site into a waterfront park offering magnificent views stretching from the Manhattan skyline to the Tappan Zee Bridge. Features include a 0.6-mile riverside esplanade, a series of grass terraces and lawns, and an "eco-corridor" filled with native plants. A segment of the planned 51-mile Westchester County RiverWalk, the park is adjacent to Tarrytown's Pierson Park.
Scenic Hudson appreciates Friends of the RiverWalk-Tarrytown for helping keep this park shipshape. This energetic corps of community volunteers has contributed mightily to the park and has developed a model for the stewardship of the RiverWalk as the founding chapter of its Friends of the RiverWalk.
