The Town of Ossining maintains over 130 acres of parkland.

Louis Engel Waterfront Park – Westerly Road is one of them.

The park’s guests could enjoy sunning beach, fishing, playground, picnic area, rest rooms.

Louis Engel Park is a 1-acre linear park that fronts the Hudson River and is boarded
in the South by a County Wastewater Treatment Facility and Sing Sing Correctional Facility and to the North by the Ossining Boat and Canoe Club.

The site is very narrow as it is also bordered by the Metro-North tracks to the east. The park includes a new playground, beach area, two fishing piers, kayak launch, pathways, and a comfort station with an adjacent parking area. The park has commanding views of the Hudson River, is used highly by residents, and warrants consideration for additional resources for improvements as it is presently one of only two public park facilities with waterfront access.

The potential exists for the future provision of swimming as an activity at the park, as recent water quality analysis by RiverKeeper has shown this area to have acceptable water quality for public use. Submerged debris immediately west of the shoreline would also need to be removed to make swimming a viable activity at the site.

Please note that you must have a New York State license to fish at a town park. Contact the Town Clerk’s Office for licensing information.

For questions or further information about any of the programs and services offered, please call the Recreation & Parks Department Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 10:00 pm.
