Hudson River Valley Greenway has awarded a grant for trail education and interpretation in the amount of $10,000.
The Greenway’s support will fund the work of the FDRHPF over 2022 and 2023 to complete a series of educational videos showcasing the opportunities for outdoor recreational use of the trails that traverse the National Park sites in Hyde Park while facilitating the historical interpretation and ecological understanding of the surrounding lands.
The Greenway Conservancy for the Hudson Valley is a public benefit corporation that was established in part to facilitate and support the creation of the Hudson River Valley Greenway Trail System. Twelve miles of trails serve to connect the four prominent historic sites in the Town of Hyde Park: Vanderbilt Mansion, the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Presidential Library, Eleanor Roosevelt’s Val-Kill, and Top Cottage. These twelve miles of trails are part of the Hyde Park Trail system and are designated Greenway Trails. We are so thankful for their support of this project.
