Stunning vista of river and horizon mountains, made better at sunset, but unknown to crowds. Those there are unobtrusive but friendly.

We enjoyed sitting and relaxing at the Waterfront. At night-time it gets a bit deserted, so caution is advised…

Dragon Boat Races in July are a blast, festivals are fun and there are a few places to play/drink/dine.

In the last couple of years, this waterfront has really changed for the best. Clean, nice restaurants, playground, BBQs, great to hang out for the day. Boat launch, free movies at night, right near the children's museum and walkway over the hudson

The waterfront at the city of Poughkeepsie is beautiful. Waryas Park is a nice place to visit. It is adjacent to The Poughkeepsie Children's Museum, skatepark and a few great restaurants.

skateboard park, bicycles, runners, walkers, joggers, strollers. This is appropriate for all. Covered shelters, benches, all along the gorgeous river. Avoid the waterfront dining options and head up the hill a bit for food. Or pick Crew at the beginning of the walkway, down the steps and 1/2 block up the hill.

Wonderful park and entertainment/eating area along the Hudson. City of Poughkeepsie has converted what had been a rundown part of town into a beautiful park and entertainment area. The park is large and green with benches for relaxing. When we were there on Father's Day week end there was a concert in the park. Entry to Walkway Over the Hudson... More
