Riverfront Park (4.10 acres), Troy's newest public park, was dedicated by Mayor Francis Flynn on September 25, 1982. The park is an important part of the revitalization of Troy's waterfront and a popular site for community activities, festivals and other public gatherings.

The Park runs along the Hudson River, behind City Hall and other buildings on River Street.

Directions to Riverfront Park:

From Boston:

Take MassPike/I-90 to NY. I-90 becomes the NYS-Thruway. Drive for 17.5 miles, Take exit B1 to stay on I-90 (and to avoid I-87).

Stay on I-90 another 13.7 miles. Watch for signs for I-787, go over large bridge across Hudson River and stay in right lane.

Take exit and bear right for I-787 NORTH. (You're on the west side of the river.)

Take I-787 North for 5-10 minutes for exit marked "Green Island". (You'll pass an exit for South Troy, Route 378). At the end of the ramp GO RIGHT.

Drive a short distance and take a right at a traffic light to go across a drawbridge (Green Island Bridge) to Troy.

Across the bridge, take a right at your first traffic signal. You'll pass parking garage on your left: the park is on your immediate right but is slightly down a hill and not entirely obvious.

Make your first right and you'll see the band shell. Past the band shell look for the parking garage (you can pull to the curb temporarily to unload any gear you might have).

The park is between the parking garage and the Castaways Restaurant.
