This is a cute little well protected park and launch area for canoes and kayaks only. Its brand new, beautifully landscaped with a concrete launch ramp and a small floating dock. Excellent spot to view the Tappan Zee Bridge which is less than 1 mile south. It's actual location is in Sleepy Hollow, which I believe is part of Tarrytown. There are numerous deli's and restaurants on Main Street.

Launching considerations / restrictions:: 

Care should be taken on the River which has a 3 ft tide range, fairly strong currents and can produce good sized waves, especially in a North or South wind. Also there is a lot of commercial ship traffic if you venture out to the channel.
