Become A Member

Much MORE than just a walk in the park...BECOME A WALKWAY MEMBER and explore the best the region has to offer

As a member, you play a critical role by providing funds to:

  • Improve access to the Hudson River Waterfront. Experience the glass-enclosed 21-story Walkway Elevator that has already welcomed over 75,000 riders via its access point at Upper Landing Park!
  • Building Visitor Reception Centers which share our rich, Hudson Valley history. The Visitor Reception Centers will house gift shops, as well as cultural, educational and interactive displays. The space will provide quality visitor amenities such as bathrooms and running water.
  • Create memorable Walkway experiences such as the well-loved Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular and the Walkway Marathon which attracted over 2,500 athletes to the Hudson Valley region.
  • Advance interactive technology such as our innovative Walkway Mobile App and Mobile Web Tour that enhance your Walkway experience.

JOIN NOW with an annual membership. And when you stroll the Walkway this season, know that your contribution makes a difference in the Hudson Valley.
