Haverstraw Bay County Park

Haverstraw Bay County Park
Project Overview: 
Rockland County purchased approximately 34 acres of undeveloped riverfront property along the Hudson River in the Village of Haverstraw, New York. As part of its interest in developing the property into a viable waterfront public use site, the County retained McLaren to provide civil, site, and marine engineering services. Located where the Hudson River is its widest, at nearly four miles, this 34-acre park sits on the west bank of the river, and is composed of numerous interesting and popular components. Several areas draw upon the waterfront to encourage people to enjoy the river environment.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren was responsible for providing all site, civil, and marine engineering services associated with the development of the park, for this award winning project. The project required permitting and approvals by Rockland County (SEQRA lead agent), NYSDEC, NYSDOS, and ACOE. Every step of the planning and design process was executed while placing a heavy importance on adhering to strict environmental standards. All fishing piers and bridges were constructed with structural grade Recycled Plastic Lumber and Piles, and all of the construction was executed without impeding on the natural setting.
