Mamatoga Review: Go Take a Hike!
(at Hudson Crossing Park)
... The park has a series of trails, play spaces and boat access, and today we thought we would just explore the trails and playground area, although I'd love to also bring a boat and explore more some day soon.

There is a nice big parking area just off the road with the playground right across the park. I was struck first by the really interesting modern architecture design of the picnic area shelter, it was instantly different from any other playground I had seen before.

I also liked the fact that it seemed part planned, and part natural and organic, as if the park designers sort of fit their pieces into the natural landscape rather than push landscape aside (or get rid of it entirely) for their stuff.

There are nice big signs with maps and information about the wildlife and flowers in the park and the kids immediately ran up the first hill to the top that overlooks the water where there was a simple swing set alongside a really interesting wooden modern shelter space.

To Whom It May Concern,
I wanted to take a quick moment to tell you how much we enjoyed our recent trip to your park. We were traveling north on the Hudson River (from Bridgeport, CT, to Lake Champlain) on our boat, and ended up staying two nights on your dock. We have two
young boys, ages 2 and 5, who were thrilled to have a whimsical, delightful Play Garden
right at the end of the dock! We loved the design of the Play Garden, how it fits with nature,
instead of conquering it. All four of us had the most fun discovering all of the components of the garden, and walking the labyrinth. We walked all the trails of the island, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We were excited to see a snake, lots of fish, and cedar waxwings. It really was a highlight of our trip. We would certainly recommend the park to anyone traveling in the area! Thank you for creating and preserving such a delightful space.
