In October 2009, the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park opened, providing access to the Hudson River's breathtaking landscape (especially in Fall) for pedestrians, hikers, joggers, bicyclists, and people with disabilities. The bridge deck stands 212 feet above the river's surface and is 1.28 miles long, making it the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world.
The park was made possible through a public-private partnership involving the State of New York as well as other government, private, and non-profit organizations. The amazing result of this partnership is Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park, one of the Hudson Valley's top attractions. Join the team to leave your mark!
