Bowline Point Park:
Haverstraw, NY 30 Oct
The water slides and water playground are by far the biggest attractions at Bowline Point Park. These water activities are set outdoors near the three playgrounds and volleyball courts. Each playground is geared to different ages, with one playground that is handicap accessible, and one especially for the toddlers.
There is also a fishing pier and a beautiful scenic path alongside the Hudson River. There are plenty of picnic tables and grills throughout the park. There is also a covered pavilion and gazebo, each with plenty of tables, although permits are needed for all groups of 5 or more entering the park.
When I visited the park in the fall it was empty and quiet. It was tranquil and relaxing. There was no one collecting parking fees. I imagine that during the summer months and swimming season it is full.
