Named in memory of Amy Wolgin Wiener, Amy's Park is a beautiful property of ponds, marshes and forests in the uplands of Bolton Landing located between Padanarum and Trout Falls Roads. The Park also includes a portion lying to the west of Trout Falls Road. It was purchased on February 29, 2012 and its hiking trails were officially opened to the public with an inaugural guided hike on Friday, July 13th following the LGLC annual meeting.Use our Bolton Landing online sightseeing planner to arrange your visit to Amy's Park and other attractions in Bolton Landing.
LGLC purchased the property for $500,000 from a conservation buyer, who held the land until LGLC was able to finalize the purchase. Funding for the deal is provided through two grants: a State Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) grant from the New York Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, which was awarded to LGLC in 2007 for this acquisition, and a Federal North American Wetlands Conservation Act grant.
The Bolton property includes the headwaters for Indian Brook and contains important wildlife habitat within its large, unfragmented forest and wetland complexes. Protecting this fragile property prevents excess nutrients and sediments that are inevitably generated by development from flowing into Indian Brook and Northwest Bay.
In 2007 the property had been under threat of development. In response, and unbeknownst to LGLC, a representative of 228 Bolton residents presented a petition to the Bolton Town Board in June of 2007 requesting the Board to protect these lands. That same evening, the Board voted to endorse LGLC’s application for the EPF grant. LGLC also received written support for the grant from Senator Betty Little and Assemblywoman Teresa R. Sayward.
Amy's Park Reviews
My wife wanted an easy walk in the woods without climbs. We chose this as it met the requirements and was remote enough to get away from busy Bolton. There are a few different trails to chose from... more »
Beautiful place! They were barely any bugs. And there were a couple of cars there but never ran into any of them. My group and I spotted poison ivy many times, with no flags we could have not noticed and gotten it. It would be greatly appreciated if you added posing ivy signs in the most places possible along the trails.
Good well marked hiking trails, the way we went in, the last mile or so is a well maintained dirt road. Remember your bug spray and everything should be wonderful!
