We love coming here! The view of the Hudson River is wonderful and lots of events on the weekends. Great for having a picnic and being with friends and family.

The renewed waterfront is a lovely spot to walk and enjoy the scene especially in the fall with all the magnificent colors. There are many restaurant in the area to eat or bring a picnic basket and enjoy. Walkway over the Hudson is a must for fantastic views. When there are fireworks going on it's the place to be.

We had a nice walk along the river, but it seems there is potential for so much more in this nice property. Best part is the views, but these same views are better seen from the Walkway Bridge which can be easily accessed nearby.

Looking at it from above on the Walkway across the Hudson it looks like a nice place to walk. But when we go down there the people congregating around the picnic tables and benches did not look very nice. We decided not to get out of the car and walk around. I would say avoid this area.

I'm so proud of what has happened at the Poughkeepsie Waterfront. After waiting for so many years! You can now walk from the train station along the river and over to the new elevator to the Walkway Over the Hudson. The elevator is attended by park rangers.

A decent waterfront area which felt safe during the day but from local reports not ideal to wander around at night. There are a few restaurant options on the waterfront like River Station and Ice House and a few others between the Waterfront and Dooley square, i.e. the train station car park. Empire Cruise Lines offering Hudson River cruises has... More

A nice park by the riverside, with great views of the bridge and the river itself. Great place to stroll on a sunny afternoon (and you can access the bridge by elevator if you want). Plenty of free parking. The surrounding area looks a bit run down and you get the feeling there is still work to be done before... More

Plenty of parking, access to the new walking bridge elevator, great restaurants to complete the experience, and the might Hudson! Good times.

Waryas Park used to be a frightening place...and I don't know that I would still go back there after dark as yet, but on a sunny day it's beautiful for a stroll and to relax and take in the view. Perhaps a drink on the deck of River Station before or after or even the Ice House Restaurant.
