East Gate Plaza Opens at Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park

The new $2 million East Gate Plaza outside the Poughkeepsie entrance to the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park opened in late October, more than doubling the size of the pathway near the linear park’s eastern entrance.

The plaza includes a walk-in space for guests to purchase Walkway merchandise, improved access to snacks, drinks, and other items, and a covered pavilion with audio/visual capabilities to support events, tours, and special programs.

The project also includes such environmental features as roof rainwater collection for irrigation, porous pavement to mitigate stormwater runoff, and an energy efficient heat pump for heating and cooling. Bike racks and more seating were also added
