A $49,000 Environmental Protection Fund project to build an accessible fishing dock and trail is now complete at Green Lake in the town of Athens, Greene County, Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Joe Martens announced on November 19, 2014.


The 35-acre Green Lake is located about two miles north of the hamlet of Leeds and is managed through a cooperative agreement with Greene County. The lake offers public fishing, wildlife viewing and boating opportunities. There is a gravel boat ramp at the site for small trailered and car top boats. DEC stocks the lake with trout each spring.
