The summer of 2019 marked the completion of a new rack built at Horan’s Landing that will hold up to 24 kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards. The slips will be available on a first come, first served basis to Sleepy Hollow residents first.
Matt Arone, Recreation Superintendent for the Village of Sleepy Hollow, said, “When I first came here, my directive was to bring a little more life and activities to our beautiful waterfront which includes Horan’s Landing.”
Now families will be able to store and launch their vessels from there for $225 for a full season. “The river is such a great opportunity for local residents for recreation, and this gives them easy access,” he said.
Sleepy Hollow joins Tarrytown, Irvington and Dobbs Ferry as rivertowns with storage units for light river crafts. “I was involved in bringing these racks to other towns as well, so I knew they would be popular as they seem to sell out every summer,” Arone added.
The Horan’s Landing rack was spruced up through the efforts of Trustee Denise Scaglione, who worked with the DPW to make sure that landscaping measures were taken to keep the surrounding area looking appealing for residents while still filling a need.
Sleepy Hollow residents should register for their slip at the Recreation Office at 55 Elm Street.
