The Rockefeller State Park Preserve is a state park in Mount Pleasant, New York in the eastern foothills of the Hudson River in Westchester County. Common activities in the park include horse-riding, walking, jogging, running, bird-watching, and fishing. The park has a rich history and was donated to the State of New York over time by the Rockefeller family beginning in 1983. A section of the park, the Rockwood Hall property, fronts the Hudson River. It was formerly the private residence of William Rockefeller, and began use as a New York state park in the early 1970s. In 2018, the park was added to New York’s State Register of Historic Places.

I’ve posted about it many times. See here.

Third stone bridge. It’s the most spectacular of the bridges. It has three arches, but is almost impossible to photography because of all of the trees and bushes around it.
