Cornwall and Cornwall-on-Hudson residents:
Have heard questions arise regarding the recently-poured 30' x 50' concrete pad tucked against the railroad tracks and nestled alongside the stream at the bottom of Dock Hill Road and within the confines of Donahue Memorial Park.
This pad serves as first phase of a pavilion project approved by the Village Board and supported via partial funding secured through a Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) grant award in 2021.
The pavilion kit should arrive before Fall and the plan is the have installed before end of this construction season. Once erected, it will serve as a covered gathering space replete with picnic tables to be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. It helps mitigate visits during inclement weather and will also be available for scheduled, Board-approved family, group, and community events. The attached photograph depicts view of pavilion, once constructed.
Important note: not one pine tree or lilac bush were harmed in this securing of designated space and we feel this will enhance the utility and opportunities at beautiful Donahue Memorial Park while safeguarding our native flora and fauna.
On behalf of the Village Board,
James A. "Jimmy" Gagliano
