Located at the base of the Croton Dam, the first large masonry dam in the United States and a prototype for municipal water supply dams in the eastern United States, this park offers a popular fishing, picnicking, and hiking spot with direct access to the Old Croton Aqueduct. In winter, this is a prime place for cross-country skiing and sledding.
