Sing Sing Kill Greenway

May 7, 2016 – Ossining, NY

Difficulty: easy

Length: approximately .5 mile

Route type: out and back

Sing Sing Kill Greenway in Ossining is a concrete walkway that lets visitors stroll in the Sing Sing Kill’s rocky gorge, with the Kill Brook rushing along beneath it and trees clinging to the side of the gorge. The new walkway is ADA-compliant, has steel railings along its full length which seems to be about a half of a mile round trip. You return the way you came.

The easiest way to access the Greenway is from the lower parking lot of the Joseph Caputo Community Center, 95 Broadway. I had heard about this from an article in The Patch. It opened on April 14, 2016 and I visited a few weeks later. I was impressed with what I saw. Although it is a relatively short walk, it is quite scenic. Hats off to the Village of Ossining for creating such a wonderful outdoor space.

The entrance from the Community Center has a series of ramps which makes it wheelchair accessible. Click on the ensuing images to enlarge.

I was surprised that with the recent opening that there weren’t more people there. I only saw a handful of people during my visit. Maybe they heard I was coming.

The Kill Brook which flows into the Hudson River has some nice cascades along the walkway.

As you near the end you encounter a staircase which leads out onto the street.

I walked up the stairs to find this sign at the other entrance on Central Ave.

What started out as a walkway for workers on a sanitary sewer project has turned into a scenic pedestrian path.
