George’s Island Park:
Montrose, NY

I felt like I was practically at a vacation destination when I visited George Island Park. I couldn’t believe it was the same Hudson River. The Pearlman’s Harbor has a boat launch. When we visited on July 4, lots of people were launching their motor boats and jet skis. No swimming is allowed at the park.

The park is huge! It spans 208 acres with hiking paths crisscrossing it. Even though we went on July 4 when there were many people we were able to find paths leading to areas that were not occupied. Many of the secluded areas also have picnic tables.

There are lots of picnic tables at the Shasta’s Cove and a ballfield as well. The huge gazebos found at different areas throughout the park have many picnic tables and grilling spots.

The playground is not down by the water but a little higher between the entrance of the park and the waterfront (there is a parking lot near the playground as well). There is a large gazebo with many picnic table near the playground. The playground area was empty when we were there-everyone was enjoying the water instead.
