Pursuant to a long term Version Plan developed in 2006, the Village of Dobbs Ferry has completed the construction of "The Great Lawn" at the north end of Waterfront Park. Located on landfill and protected by stone faced riprap, this location offers unbelievable views up and down the scenic Hudson River. This area will be used as a general purpose athletic field for youth and recreational sports including soccer, as well as for other Village events. The multi-purpose Great Lawn concept was inspired by the work of Frederick Law Olmsted, the designer of both Central Park and Prospect Park.
The ADFH (Ardsley-Dobbs Ferry-Hastings) United Soccer Club will play games at Waterfront Park beginning in September 2009.
