We're Looking Across The Bridge and we are
With the opening of the Dix Bridge, the Town of Greenwich has laid out a welcome
mat and we are looking across the river for fertile space to grow Hudson Crossing
The Park has been given a $5,000 grant from the Community/Land Preservation and Planning Fund of the Community Foundation for the
Greater Capital Region. Thanks to additional support from the Towns of Northumberland, Greenwich, and Saratoga, as well as an
anonymous donor, a total of $22,000 has now been raised to support an intensive planning process underway to direct the growth of the
Park into Washington County. Cindy Wian, longtime volunteer with Hudson Crossing Park, has been hired to work closely with the
Park’s Board of Directors, and community leaders in the Town of Greenwich and Washington County, to coordinate planning and assist
in developing a “2020 Vision” for the Park’s operation and growth.
A portion of the Community Foundation grant will also help expand
the Schuylerville Green Ribbon School Project, one of Hudson
Crossing’s signature outreach programs.
This project prioritizes getting students outdoors, integrating
environmental education into the curriculum, promoting an
environmentally-friendly campus, and incorporating health and
fitness into school programs. It is part of a national program
currently involving more than 850 schools. Locally, the Schulerville
Green Ribbon School Project is a collaborative effort between
Hudson Crossing Park, parent volunteers, students, teachers,
school staff, and the community. In October 2014, the Schuylerville
School District was named a “Green Ribbon School” by
GreenRibbonSchool.org, one of only 25 in the country to receive this
recognition. Hudson Crossing Park will continue to be a sponsoring partner for this outstanding school-based program.

What's that tub with a fence around it over in the field by the trail?
To answer this and a few similar questions about the Art In The Park, we
have built a new page that will introduce you to the Art Trail we have been
building with thanks to all of the Artists who have helped us.
While the art along the trails stands out there is a lot of art throughout the Park
that presents itself in a more subtle way. We've included some of these works
too just in case you didn't notice them.
