County Legislator George Oros (R—Cortlandt) joined County Executive Andrew Spano, Peekskill Mayor John Testa and other local officials at the waterfront in the City of Peekskill to celebrate the official opening of the Annsville Trail on Wednesday, April 19th. The group marked the occasion with a special ribbon cutting ceremony.

The trail and recreation area was constructed at a picturesque location on a portion of waterfront property in the City of Peekskill. It is included in the County’s RiverWalk trail system, a project that will ultimately connect 46 miles of walkways and trails on the Hudson River starting from the Cortlandt and Peekskill area and extending all the way to the Bronx.

“There are many people to thank for the site’s development, design and amazing makeover,” said Oros. “Its success is the result of hard work and cooperation between many people from the county and from the City of Peekskill who saw the potential of the site and created a place where all County residents will be able to enjoy the majestic beauty and serenity of the Hudson River.”

The funding to revitalize Annsville Trail was secured through the County’s Community Development Block Grant program.
