Sits off the eastern shore of the Hudson River just south of Albany. Approximately seven miles of Hudson River and Schodack Creek shoreline bound the 1,052-acre site. A day-use facility, the park has been designated a State Estuary, and a portion of the park shelters a Bird Conservation Area (BCA) that is home to bald eagles, cerulean warblers and blue herons that nest in the cottonwood trees. In addition, eight miles of multi-use trails wind through a variety of ecological communities, and the park has an improved bike trail. Interpretive signage highlights the park’s historic and environmental significance.
