Callicoon Riverside Park
Callicoon, New York
Park Master Site Planning
To create a conceptual design which will provide public access to 48 acres of forests and fields, including 4,000 feet of riverfront along the Upper Delaware River.
The Trust for Public Land
The Callicoon Riverside Park project will provide public access to approximately 48 acres of forest and fields—including 4,000 feet of riverfront—along the Upper Delaware River in the hamlet of Callicoon, New York. Located within the main stem watershed of the Upper Delaware, the Site is currently a dilapidated RV park and is closed to public access. Its conservation and transformation into a park will protect natural resources, including important fish and wildlife habitat, enable floodplain and riverfront restoration, guarantee access, and create new recreational opportunities.
EPD is leading a design team for the conceptual design of Callicoon Riverside Park, which plays a critical role along the Upper Delaware River and necessitates a vision for its development with consideration of neighborhood needs, recreation, historic and cultural identity, circulation, design of open space, maintenance, natural resources, and sustainability. The Callicoon Riverside Park Master Plan will provide a roadmap for future implementation and investment while critically depending on the community engagement and public feedback received through the process.
