Croton Point Park is a Westchester County park in the village of Croton-on-Hudson.The park has several public attractions including: a miniature aircraft airport, boat launch, tent and RV camping, cabin rental, cross-country skiing, fishing, group picnicking, hiking and walking trails, a museum, nature study, pavilions, a playground, swimming, and a beach.A substantial portion of the land on which the park is situated today was the site of a landfill, which was operated by the Westchester County government from 1927 to 1986. The landfill has since been capped off and restored to green space. A 1931 map shows the landfill area as marsh.The park is also home to several historic sites such as a set of wine cellars from an old manor.The park hosts a number of events each year, including the annual Hudson River Sloop Clearwater festival, the Croton Point Shindig, and Hudson River Eagle Fest.

  • A 4 season place to visit. Love to be outside? This is the place to go and do it all
  • Bathrooms are very messy but otherwise large beautiful park. Towards the end of the evening, trash bins tend to overflow and are unsightly. #footballonthebanks #awesomesunsets #largetrees #whatmakeswestchesterlovely #upstatesummers
  • It would be nice if all of the park signs and website info was updated to say that it's actually $10 to park with a park pass in addition to $4 per adult for entrance. Nearly $20 for two people to go to a beach with barely any amenities? Sorry, looks like I won't be going here anymore. (TIP: Maybe give out wristbands as people are entering instead of having workers with attitudes hound you while you're on the beach.) Edit: Rating adjusted after we were able to talk to park rangers and have our $5 refunded.
  • I kinda don't wanna share, because it's such a little hidden gem off the Hudson river. Hah
  • A beautiful park with lots of space
