Peggy's Point

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.
