New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation will suspend the operation of the Walkway Over the Hudson elevator for winter on Friday, January 10. The elevator is scheduled to resume regular service in April 2020.
Operation of the elevator at Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park is seasonal and weather dependent. ADA-compliant entrances to the park are open and available at 87 Haviland Road, Highland, NY, 12528 and 61 Parker Avenue, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601. The Washington Street Staircase in Poughkeepsie is also open during regular park hours.
The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation oversees more than 250 parks, historic sites, recreational trails, golf courses, boat launches and more, which are visited by 74 million people annually. A recent study found that New York State Parks generates $5 billion in park and visitor spending, which supports nearly 54,000 jobs.
