Croton Gorge Park

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with J. Philip Faranda (J. Philip R.E. LLC) Westchester County NY

Westchester residents have long known the strategic role our county plays in the New York City water supply. Our network or reservoirs, dams and aqueducts provide the lion's share of water to the largest city in the country, but they also give us some fantastic parks and pieces of scenery. Today I had the opportunity to drive through Cortlandt Manor and Croton on Hudson, and the reservoir views with autumn here were breathtaking.

 Croton Reservoir

Croton Gorge Park is the site of the Croton Dam, which along with Kensico Dam helped create the whole reservoir system. The park is open from 8am to dusk, has plenty of parking and greenery, and the view of the gorge waterfall is awe inspiring. We brought the kids today and they absolutely loved it. I saved it to the GPS favorites so Ann can bring them back whenever she wants. It is 10 minutes from our home and worth a drive far longer. If you are ever near Croton or north Westchester, this is for the bucket list.

Croton Gorge Park is just off Route 129, north of the village of Croton on Hudson. It is about 5 minutes from Route 9A.
