Peggy's Point was formally dedicated on June 24, 2011, in honor of Margaret
"Peggy" A. Darrin. A long-time supporter of LGLC and all things Lake George,
Peggy donated the 1.9-acre property to LGLC in 2005 to be maintained as a park
for public enjoyment.
The park includes 315 feet of lake shoreline, a popular spot for anglers and
anyone who wishes to sit and enjoy a peaceful moment on the point. Having
previously hosted cabins, a convenience store and a gas station, the property is
now a beautiful lawn with towering birch trees and space for families to play
and picnic together. The property also has a gazebo with benches for a shaded
spot to rest.
In honor of Peggy's dedication to the preservation of Lake George and as a
tribute to the many others who also share her passion for the lake, the park
also has a Friendship Garden. A meandering path leads from the park gate to
Mary Lou's Friendship Garden, a 30-foot diameter bed, consisting of perennials provided
by the public in honor of or in memory of a special place, person or event. The
Garden is named in honor of Mary Lou Doulin, Hague resident and volunteer
extraordinaire who has kept watch over Peggy's Point and done an amazing amount
of work to keep the Garden looking great. Anyone is welcome to add a plant free of charge, however we ask that some
guidelines be followed to ensure the health and overall enjoyment of the garden.
Guidelines and further details are below and available via the links at right.
Identification labels are also available for a nominal fee and may be ordered
through LGLC. A printable order form is at right, or call 518-644-9673 to place
your label order.
