For those of you that haven’t visited our beautiful Riverlink Park, you are missing one of Amsterdam’s greatest assets. There are fantastic vistas up and down the river, the cafe is stellar, there are concerts planned for Saturday nights throughout the season, and the park is carefully manicured by an attendant every day. Boats have begun mooring at the docks, sometimes as many as six to eight at a pop, and flowers adorn the gardens and urns along the walkways.

As summer swings into full regalia, we are swinging full-force into completing construction of the second phase of the park. Additional walking paths, decorative lighting, new plantings, and benches will extend all of the way to RT30 bridge. The playground will be relocated and a 12′ x 35′ recreation of the “Painted Rocks”, a significant piece of Amsterdam’s Native American Heritage, will be brought to life on site by internationally-renowned artist, Alice Manzi.

It’s bound to be a facinating time at the park, as we take another step toward realizing the dream of a fully-revitalized waterfront. The following photos document the park in its current state and the beginning of construction.
