Panoramas: Lower Valley
Tallman Mountain State Park, public pool
Drag your mouse in the image to control.

A popular place to spend a summer day is Tallman Mountain State Park in Rockland County. The park has extensive trails, picnicking areas and a wonderful public pool.

The pool is down on a bluff overlooking the Piermont Marsh. The marsh is the largest remaining brackish tidal marsh on the Hudson River. It includes about 1,000 acres of tidal marsh and sub-tidal shallows. Sitting by the pool perched high above the marsh is a favorite location to watch the many species of birds and other wildlife that make the marsh their home.

The pool complex is easily accessible to and from the Village of Piermont as well. Below the pool, an improved cinder pathway leads north along the edge of the marsh across to Piermont, a very short distance away. It's an easy stroll to reach the Village where you can find enticing cafes, interesting bistros and basic shopping to get a picnic or have a picnic created for you.
