Madam Brett Park


Photo of Madam Brett Park

Madam Brett Park is a 12-acre park located in the Village of Beacon. It is named after Catheryna Rombout Brett, the first European settler in the present-day city, who operated a gristmill here along Fishkill Creek, which later powered the Tioronda Hat Works (whose ruins sit adjacent to the park). The park offers a short trail along the Fishkill Creek leading to the Fishkill Marsh, which is home to a variety of amphibians and aquatic mammals and provides hunting grounds for ospreys and bald eagles and a stopover for migratory birds. The park is open year-round from sunrise to sunset and admission is free.
