Accessible Parks

Accessibility features have been added to Dutchess Stadium - home of the minor league Hudson Valley Renegades, as well as at Bowdoin Park and the lake at Wilcox Memorial Park which features a beach mat access path and specialized floating and sand wheelchairs to provide safe access in and out of the water for a fun day at the beach. Accessibility improvements are also continuously being made at other county run parks. For kids, nothing beats Julie’s Jungle, a universally accessible playground in Hopewell Junction.

Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park’s Poughkeepsie entrances at 61 Parker Avenue and the waterfront elevator entrance at Upper Landing Park are ADA-compliant and accessible, with no stairs required giving easy access for all to the world’s longest elevated pedestrian bridge. Guided Tour Ambassadors are often onsite to help those who need additional assistance and wheelchairs are available if reserved in advance. 

Dinsmore Golf Course, the 3rd oldest course in the country, and James Baird Golf Course both offer accessible golfing opportunities. Call ahead to reserve and accessible golf cart.
