Scenic Hudson completes $16 million renovation
Scenic Hudson has opened 4 acres of Long Dock Park in Beacon that had long been closed to the public. The move came as Scenic Hudson put finishing touches on the $16 million transformation that took place over the past decade on the 19-acre, former industrial site. Scenic Hudson bought the land in 1996.
Located along the park’s north shore, the new acreage contains shade pavilions, lawns and a native-plant meadow; a boardwalk and river overlook deck; plug-ins for food trucks; and a civic plaza with benches and picnic tables for informal dining. The nonprofit has invited food-truck vendors to submit proposals for operating at the park. See scenichudson.org/foodtruckRFP.
