The Village of Castleton has no public access to the Hudson River. Having access to outdoor recreation and waterways is a critical aspect of community and proven to support economic revival and growth. For these reasons COHMSA is a dedicated supporter of river access for the village by safe access to Riverfront Park. Many other dedicated individuals, community groups, and Village Officials have fought for access for more than 25 years as Riverfront Park has remained inaccessible due to Amtrak’s restrictions.

COHMSA has joined this fight in support of the Village to gain access to our most important natural resource. Being able to get to the the river shoreline allows for public use to enjoy the river for fishing, kayaking, bird watching, sightseeing, and so many countless recreational opportunities.
