Took a quick trip here for a picnic and had such a great time. Very clean park, a lot of open space to relax and not be bothered. Beautiful landscape and dam designs. Would recommend this place to anyone in the area or visitors.

Who knew this place even existed?? A lovely site in a scenic park in Westchester County, with a number of easy to follow trails.

A very pretty and relaxing spot to have a picnic and forget a little about the crazy city life. Bring your own food and drinks as there were no food concessions that we saw. Only downside is they only had chemical toilets available when we visited.

Post 9/11 security of the watershed system has severely restricted access by car. Once you get there, though, it is an awesome view and there is beautiful picnicking facility.

Definitely worth a visit in the warmer weather and a photographers dream. Cannot wait to return in the late spring for another visit.

The New Croton Dam is a great place for photography. Best light for photographing the water cascading over the spillway is in late afternoon from the park below the dam. You can also walk over the dam and take photos of the reservoir.
