Monday, May 21, 2007 -- admin

Astonished that the Town of Lloyd, Ulster County, where he lives, is the only community along the Hudson that doesn’t offer residents a place to connect with the river, Matt Smith did something about it. He spearheaded a 14-year campaign to create Highland Landing Park. Soon his dream will be realized. With Scenic Hudson’s help, the town is purchasing a former riverside fuel terminal. When complete, the 1.7-acre park will feature a riverwalk, a boat launch, an education center and space to fish and picnic.

(HYDE PARK, New York)—Officials from the National Park Service (NPS) and Scenic Hudson led a ceremony today celebrating the transfer of a large parcel of land to the NPS to be added to the FDR National Historic Site. The wooded 334-acre parcel contains the historic farm lane that links the Roosevelt home Springwood and Eleanor Roosevelt's Val-Kill. Once again visitors will experience the property as the Roosevelts did and connect with land that was very personal to one of America's great families.
