The City of Kingston has received $552,500 from the Department of State’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program for Kingston Point wetland restoration and a waterfront kayak dock.

As part of the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) grant announcements, the City of Kingston was awarded funding for the Kingston Point Wetland Restoration and Public Access Improvements project to restore wetlands and construct a public access point to the Hudson River.

The project, part of the City’s comprehensive Weaving the Waterfront initiative, includes demolition of two condemned City-owned unoccupied houses in the flood zone on North Street and the construction of a small parking area, boardwalk, and pier with kayak dock to provide public access to the waterfront. The dock will provide safe access to kayakers of all skill levels to explore wetlands, which are currently accessible only from the Hudson River. It will also serve as a wetland viewing platform with educational interpretive signage for visitors.

Construction is expected to begin in 2024 and be completed by 2026. The total project cost is approximately $650,000.
