Scenic Hudson's Long Dock Park


blank dot

Scenic Hudson's Long Dock Park is a public park in New York state. The site is a man-made peninsula jutting out into the Hudson River which began as an industrial train yard before being converted into a public park in the early 2000s. The project was led by the Scenic Hudson Land Trust, and designed by Reed Hilderbran landscape architects. The park's restored 19th-century red barn--the only historic holdover --is now Scenic Hudson's River Center, which hosts arts and environmental-education activities. Hudson River Expeditions offers kayak and paddleboard rentals at Long Dock Park from July through mid-October. The park project transformed a 14-acre man-made peninsula on the Hudson River in Beacon, New York, from a degraded, post-industrial relic to a major waterfront park that realizes themes of recovery, remediation, reuse, and re-engagement.
