The massive dam at the entrance to Croton Gorge Park never fails to impress, whether there is a delicate trickle barely covering the ledges or water roaring down the spillway. Sometimes visitors are treated to a rainbow. 
The impressive New Croton Dam towers about 200 feet above grassy fields and picnic areas. The dam, also called the Cornell Dam, because it was built on property purchased from A.B. Cornell in 1893. It was completed in 1907.
