Park Advisory: ALL DOGS MUST BE LEASHED and under the control of their handler. Pet waste must be removed from the park. Please be responsible for your pets and keep the Park clean for others.
Can you identify these birds by their song? How about by the way they feel?
Thanks to local Artist and Blacksmith, Leif Johnson, our sensory trail will have life sized hand crafted sculptures of these birds that you can touch. Soon we will have a page to display his work. Click any bird to learn more about it and hear it's song.
To produce the right size and feel for his bird sculptures, Leif used resources shared by the Pember Museum of Natural History in Granville, NY.

But... Can you find them in the park?
Click the sheet above and print it. When you find one of the birds, scan the QR code to learn about it and hear the song it makes. Maybe a live one near by will answer the sounds?
What a year 2013 was but 2014 is
going to be even bigger!...

Visits are up, events are up, the Dix Bridge and the Riverwalk Sensory Trail are open, we have projects started and pavilion reservations already made to bring us into 2014.

Increased activity creates an increased need for maintenance.

As we are not permitted to charge for the use of our facilities, we need to reach out to you for financial support. Your tax deductible donation or your time will help us to maintain the Park and continue to grow it into the educational and recreational destination it was designed to be.
A Special Thank You to a few Garden Donors

Hudson Crossing Park would not look as good as it does without our hard working volunteers and the garden related donations we receive to beautify the Park.
