Braddock Bay Park
199 East Manitou Road
This 375 acre town operated park is part of the 3000 acre Braddock Bay Fish and Wildlife Management Area owned by NY State. The park and surrounding area is currently part of the Braddock Bay Ecosystem Restoration Project, led by the Army Corps of Engineers. The goal is to protect the Braddock Bay wetlands from erosion and to restore it’s habitat diversity thus improving its suitability for fish and wildlife.
Braddock Bay Park is also renowned for being an excellent bird-watching location. Raptors and other birds congregate here when migrating north in the Spring.
Since 1986, Braddock Bay Raptor Research has been working towards preserving the area’s natural resources by focusing research and educational activities on the spectacular raptor migration.
