This newly renovated park offers visitors a scenic view of the Cohoes Falls never before open to the public. One can gain access to the park by walking from North Mohawk Street on a footbridge over the power canals. The four-acre Falls View Park is adjacent to Brookfield Renewable Power’s School Street hydroelectric generating facility. Interpretive panels can be found in Fall Views Park’s canal-side plaza which were created by the National Park Service.
Visitors to Falls View Park can now enjoy a wide range of recreational and historical features including: a two-bus, drop-off area and an informational kiosk along North Mohawk Street; a 192-foot-long pedestrian bridge spanning the School Street power canal from North Mohawk Street to the primary overlook area; primary and secondary overlook areas with views of the falls and access to nearby trails; Americans with Disability Act (ADA)-compliant facilities such as fishing platforms and, an 80-person amphitheatre.
HOURS: The carry in/carry out park will be open during daylight hours from May through October. Off-street parking is available for park visitors.
