Very well restored park with remnants of the foundry. It is a short walk from the town and easily reachable by foot so recommended for those people who arrive town with the Metro North or by boat.

Thoughtfully-produced historical exhibits--just the right amount to make you feel like you can tell the story after you've visited. Each spot on the trail offers an opportunity to visualize the industrial history. The sycamores, deer, and migrating warblers have taken over, but the human past...More

There is a nice picnic area, near a stream in a shady wooded area where the family can chill while others go exploring. I think the week ends it can get crowded so you may want to get there earlier.
