Secretary of State Cesar A. Perales, the Town of Lloyd and the Highland Landing Park Association Break Ground on
Bob Shepard Highland Landing Park Waterfront Restoration Project on July 24th at 10:30 AM
Highland, NY – On Tuesday July 24th at 10:30AM, Secretary of State Cesar A. Perales will be joined by
Town of Lloyd Supervisor Paul Hansut; Scenic Hudson Land Conservation Director, Seth McKee; President of Highland Landing Park Association, Matt Smith; community leaders and local officials to break ground on a new waterfront recreational project at Bob Shepard Highland Park.
In 2008, the Department of State awarded a grant to the Town of Lloyd for waterfront restoration of Highland Landing Park. The town, with the help of the Highland Landing Park Association, has since embarked on a project to stabilize the park’s shoreline and restore Highland Landing to its historic function as an active waterfront. The first phase of the project will include installing a new bulkhead and restoring a decayed deepwater dock, enabling tourism and educational ships and heritage vessels to stop at the park.
