Hudson Crossing Park
Co Rd. 42, Schuylerville
Looking for a new place to explore? Come visit Hudson Crossing Park, located just north of Schuylerville in the beautiful and historic countryside of Olde Saratoga. Spend a day watching a barge lock through on the Champlain Canal, sliding down a hillside slide, walking a labyrinth, looking for waterfowl on the Hudson River from the historic Dix Bridge, or walking the more than two miles of trails.
Hudson Crossing Park is a year-round recreational and educational destination where you can play, picnic, fish, hike, snowshoe, birdwatch, kayak, and more. Centered on the island between Lock 5 of the Champlain Canal and the Hudson River, the park includes trails, scenic overlooks, interpretive signage, a unique Play Garden, and a picnic pavilion.
Created and maintained by volunteers, the park is operated by a nonprofit organization in collaboration with the Town Of Northumberland, Town of Greenwich, Town of Saratoga, Village of Schuylerville, New York State Canal Corporation, Saratoga National Historical Park, New York State Museum, and Skidmore College, among others. It is a growing destination for local residents and tourists alike. Its mission is to link environmental responsibility with economic revitalization, and to engage people of all ages in making informed choices for a sustainable future. To that end, the Hudson Crossing Park’s staff and Board of Directors focus on three objectives:
-Fostering environmental stewardship
-Emphasizing the area’s natural, cultural, and economic history
-Establishing a public park that is an educational and recreational destination
-The park is open every day from dawn to dusk with no admission charge.
