YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- The Town of Yorktown has been awarded a $7,500 Hudson River Valley Greenway Grant to begin the process of connecting Railroad and FDR parks via the North County Trailway.

"This announcement is a positive first step in our efforts to connect two of our town's beautiful parks," said Yorktown Supervisor Michael Grace said after the grant was awarded Friday.

Republican State Sen. Terrence Murphy, who issued a statement on the grant, said the award would be beneficial to the town.

"Connecting the North County Trailway to FDR Park would enhance the recreational benefits Yorktown has to offer," Murphy said.

The Hudson River Valley Greenway agency was created in 1991 by the Greenway Act and now encompasses 264 communities within 13 counties that border the Hudson River, Murphy said.
