Sen. Sue Serino Helps Secure $50,000 in Funding for Popular State Park
POUGHKEEPSIE, NY--The Walkway Over the Hudson nonprofit organization and NYS Senator Sue Serino hosted a press conference announcing the award of a $50,000 grant from the NYS Municipal Facilities Corporation that will purchase a much-needed electric maintenance vehicle and for improvements to the Parks’ eastern entranceway in the City of Poughkeepsie. After the press conference, the organization held a “vesting ceremony” for 11 newly trained Ambassadors, all volunteers from Mid-Hudson Valley communities who will join the Walkway Volunteer Ambassador Corps to support Parks’ staff and help the Park’s nearly 500,000 annual visitors in numerous ways.

Join us to celebrate the induction of the Hudson Valley Trail Network into the Rail-Trail Hall of Fame!
Tuesday, October 4, 2016
9:45 - 11:30 am
The Network includes three spectacular trails—the Hudson Valley Rail Trail, Walkway Over the Hudson and William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail—totalling 18 miles and stretching from Highland, over the Hudson River and through Poughkeepsie, to Hopewell Junction. The network is an example of what’s possible for communities when trails are seamlessly connected—from tourism, to outdoor recreation, active transportation and economic development.
Guests will gather at the West Approach at 9:45 a.m. to be escorted to the ceremony at the Center Overlook. Escorts will also be available at the East Approach for guests coming from Poughkeepsie.
After the ceremony, guests will be invited to the West Approach for light refreshments.
