Sojourner Truth Ulster Landing County Park Permeable Pavers


people walking on a path paved with Permeable pavers

This project provided access to an existing 500-foot trail over an area that was previously lawn of uneven terrain. This 400-foot trail extension of permeable pavers provided ADA compliant access to an existing trail of hardened crushed stone that runs along a bluff overlooking the Hudson River. The trail continues over a wooden bridge over a ravine, culminating at a picnic area down at the river's edge.
