There is a new way to experience the Old Croton Aqueduct State Historic Park…virtually! Trail walker David Windmueller has traversed the 26 miles of the park from the dam to the Bronx border while recording with a GoPro 360 degree camera. Doing it in segments over the last few months, David’s videos were then uploaded using the Google Street View Studio which allows anyone to map out roads and trails for others.


One Thing Leads to Another – how We Tended the Trail in So Many Different Ways on so Many Days

An amazing series of I Love My Park Day events took place in May and June of 2022 on the northern section of the Aqueduct trail, sponsored by Parks & Trails NY and hosted by the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct.



The Old Croton Aqueduct State Historic Park has been awarded three official New York State historic markers. They highlight designated points along the trail for their significant role in local Westchester and New York City history.

On July 16, a talented group of performers recruited by the Friends, told stories, sang songs, demonstrated martial arts, described their own group activities and told of their relationship with the Aqueduct. The event was attended by over a hundred local residents.

The festival was planned to expand the outreach of the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct and to encourage knowledge and appreciation of the Trail. “Aqueduct Day in Yonkers” was supported by funding from the New York Parks and Trails Partnership.


Please be advised that the Lyndhurst section of the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail will be closed for the 146th Westminster Dog Show from Saturday 6/18 until Wednesday 6/22. A slight detour will be in place that will direct patrons to Broadway before reconnecting with the trail on the far section of the property. We apologize for the inconvenience.
