The New York City Department of Environmental Protection announced Tuesday the release of an interactive recreation mapping tool that uses layers of data and maps to help the public find properties that are open for fishing, hiking and other types of outdoor recreation.

The digital map, which provides information on City-owned properties that are open for recreation, is now available on DEP’s website by visiting nyc.gov/dep/recreation. DEP will participate in several public gatherings this summer to demonstrate the new mapping tool and share information about recreational access on water supply lands and waters. A public session scheduled for Delaware County is Thursday July 7th at the Catskill Watershed Corporation office, located at 905 Main Street, Margaretville.
