It’s been fun watching the Rivertowns develop their waterfronts, with Tarrytown’s Riverwalk being one of the most anticipated openings in the last couple of years. Now Dobbs Ferry has their own river-front trail to celebrate.
Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park recently opened with a brand new playground, paved walking trails and shaded benches, perfect for exploring. There’s a small dock to walk out on, offering up gorgeous views of the city skyline to the south and the Tappan Zee Bridge to the north. And when you get thirsty or need an ice cream, Hudson Social restaurant is nearby with fresh brewed iced tea and gelato.
Situated by the Dobbs Ferry Train Station, the park has a sailing-themed playground for kids. (There’s a large, challenging playground for older kids, and an easy-climber for tots.) My son loved all of the lookouts. Best of all, there are exercise machines for parents to work out on while their kids run around. If you go, be sure to park in the designated visitor parking spaces closest to the nearby restaurant Hudson Social. Otherwise, you’ll be ticketed.
