As a direct result of the the Village’s award-winning “Visions in Planning” initiative, residents and visitors can safely travel, for example, from Ossining, over the Croton River Bridge, to Croton Point Park and on to the Half Moon Bay Trail, ending at Elliottt Way, which goes by the Senasqua Tunnel, past Senasqua Park to Croton Landing or towards town over the Pedstrian Bridge at Brook Street and finally on to miles of new sidewalks.
Rome was not built in a day. Nor were these magnificent trails, which give unparalleled riverfront access and provide breathtaking views, as this timeline indicates.
The Village website states, “For more than 20 years, the Village of Croton-on-Hudson has taken numerous steps towards the goal of achieving an overall plan that enhances the Village’s small-town character while building on its unique location at the apex of two beautiful and historic rivers. The Village’s goals have been achieved through its efforts in gaining cooperation and commitments from other entities, both public and private.”
And it just keeps getting better… Recently the Village entrered into an agreement to manage two new ballfields at Croton Point Park. So, this Fall, try something really different and fun. Instead of driving over to AYSO games, go by way of the river on your bikes. The journey is awesome (slideshow).
