New park along Hudson River in Poughkeepsie

POUGHKEEPSIE (AP) -- A new park along the Hudson River is opening in Poughkeepsie.

Upper Landing Park on the city's northern waterfront is opening to the public Saturday. The Dyson Foundation owns the 2.7-acre parcel, which is in the shadow of the popular Walkway Over the Hudson pedestrian bridge.

The park will provide access to the walkway's waterfront elevator when it begins operating in January.

The park will be open from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. for its first week. Regular park hours will be 7 a.m. until sunset beginning Nov. 23.
