Dragon Boat Races in July are a blast, festivals are fun and there are a few places to play/drink/dine.

In the last couple of years, this waterfront has really changed for the best. Clean, nice restaurants, playground, BBQs, great to hang out for the day. Boat launch, free movies at night, right near the children's museum and walkway over the hudson
