Contact: Dave Hayes, 845-229-1521
The National Park Service is set to begin work on visitor access improvements at Roosevelt Farm Lane at the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site. The Farm Lane provides a trail connection between Routes 9 and 9G and is part of the Hyde Park Trail network.
The project includes construction of a permanent Roosevelt Farm Lane trailhead and 40-car parking area on historic Roosevelt lands at the south end of the Hyde Park Drive-In Theater.(Theater operations will not be affected.) The entrance to the new parking area will be directly opposite the existing entrance to the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site.
