The office of Hudson Mayor Kamal Johnson has announced that work on Promenade Hill Park will begin on Monday, June 8 as part of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) program. Improvements to the park, which is located at the intersection of Warren St. and Front St. and overlooks the Hudson River, include “preserving historic features while providing access to park amenities and extraordinary views of the Hudson and the Catskills for people of all abilities.”

The city has contracted with Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects and Proper and O’Leary Engineering for both design and construction oversight services.

The Promenade Hill Park project, along with a handful of other projects, like the Dunn Warehouse redevelopment and restoration of the historic fishing village on the north side of the city, encompass the city’s ongoing efforts as part of the $10m grant it won from the state of New York as part of its DRI program in 2017.
