After the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Great Wall of China, the new Croton Dam is the 3rd largest hand-hewn structure in the world. Your mouth will drop when you first drive over the small bridge as you enter Croton Gorge Park. No visitor to Westchester County should miss this amazing structure and water show. You will never stop... More

Nice and quiet spot to admire the ice formations under the majestic old dam/bridge. You can also take a short walk and appreciate them from the top.

This is a truly lovely spot to be with a camera, a friend, your dog, your children, a good book, some solitude. The only problem is that some fisherman leave their wire and garbage behind. Some people throw garbage around out of ignorance and poor upbringing but most of the visitors are respectful and a visit there is a nice... More

This is an amazing destination right in the Croton neighborhood. It's like Shangra La...ride up a woody path and voila -- the most amazing sight you will ever see. It should be the 8th world wonder! The adjoining picnic area and playground are added bonuses, but go just for the majestic sight of the rushing dam.

Magical place, in any season! I always take out of town guests to see it, and everyone is always so amazed by the size and beauty.

Get outside and explore this amazing dam. You can walk the gravel trail that leads up to the dam and get an up close view looking down into the splash. The road on top is closed allowing you to take in all the scenery of the dam and huge Croton Reservoir. This is a great walk in all seasons but... More

The dam is enormous and very impressive as it was built long ago. My GPS guided us to the south end of the dam, but one can figure out how to drive around to the north where the view is also great. The park and stream are beautiful and easy to access.
