Welcome to The Southeast Levee of Elmira, NY!
This walk can be approached from either Brand Park on Walnut Street, or Dunn Field on Luce Street. There are even a few place in between where a person can come from the dead-end roads and off-street accesses. So there is no need to overdo it, if you are disabled or elderly. Take your car and some walking shoes. Stay on the levee, and you'll be fine. The fishing access will let you drive right to the river itself.
Brand Park has been recently renovated in many ways and is clean and highly accessible. GrandDog fell in love immediately, rewarding me with a small packet to toss in the wastebin. Oh, yeah. Remember: Please pick up after your pup!
