Great Views!!!

This was a great area to walk around and check out the scenery. Very well maintained area and there are several places to grab lunch close by as well.

The waterfront at the city of Poughkeepsie is beautiful. Waryas Park is a nice place to visit. It is adjacent to The Poughkeepsie Children's Museum, skatepark and a few great restaurants.

skateboard park, bicycles, runners, walkers, joggers, strollers. This is appropriate for all. Covered shelters, benches, all along the gorgeous river. Avoid the waterfront dining options and head up the hill a bit for food. Or pick Crew at the beginning of the walkway, down the steps and 1/2 block up the hill.

Wonderful park and entertainment/eating area along the Hudson. City of Poughkeepsie has converted what had been a rundown part of town into a beautiful park and entertainment area. The park is large and green with benches for relaxing. When we were there on Father's Day week end there was a concert in the park. Entry to Walkway Over the Hudson... More

I walked through the waterfront as part of a circular hike over the two bridges across the Hudson river. The park itself is very well-maintained with a number of good restaurants, restrooms, and places to simply sit and see one of the greatest rivers in the world.

Sun rise over the Hudson river are a beautiful sight. On a clear day you can see in both directions up and down the river for miles, and on a foggy morning, there is something mystical about the view.

A great place either foliage and summer or rather spring, good to take beautiful photos and a nice place also to walk along the path while the seasons are changing.

Night time pictures are awesome if water is calm. Day time can picnic and walk to the Walkway Over the Hudson.
