Hudson River Park

40 Hudson River Greenway, New York City

4.5
Hudson River Park is a waterside park on the North River (Hudson River), and is the part of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway that extends from 59th Street south to Battery Park in the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is a joint state and city collaboration. It is a 550-acre (2.2 km2) park stretching 4.5 miles (7.2 km), making it the second-biggest park in Manhattan after Central Park. The park arose as part of the West Side Highway replacement project in the wake of the abandoned Westway plan. Bicycle and pedestrian paths, spanning the park north to south, open up the waterfront for recreational use. The park includes tennis and soccer fields, batting cages, children's playground, dog run, and many other features. The parkland also incorporates several rebuilt North River piers along its length, formerly used for shipping. Hudson River Park connects many other recreational sites and landmarks. It runs through the Manhattan neighborhoods of Lower Manhattan (including Battery Park City, World Trade Center, and Tribeca), Greenwich Village (including the West Village and Meatpacking District), Chelsea, and Midtown West (which includes Hudson Yards and Hell's Kitchen/Clinton).

    I dearly, dearly love the park and watched it being built. I use it on an almost daily basis, whether commuting via bike, or paddle-assisted long board, or Xootr; or walking my dog, or paddle-boarding and kayaking year-round on the river—I truly, truly love. I write this review however to call attention to the unresponsive, appointed, autocratic senior management team that is in charge of the park and Trust. I have no window into the inner workings but do see the results of their inability in terms of management and oversight.

    Lots of joggers and walking traffic on path but for the most part lots of quiet spots to relax all the time. Well kept and punctuated with clean piers with various spaces for sporting activities and sitting. Plenty of places to picnic and people watch. It is less accessible say than The Highline or Central park so considerably less tourist traffic. 2 playgrounds at either end. Both are clean, newish and well designed.

    Great place to workout and do yoga. It's a beautiful view of the skyline. They have an area where you can just relax, eat snacks, or enjoy the view with your friends. Food is available as well as Kayaking lessons which are always fun. Overall, great experience and will be returning. Definitely a place to check out if your in the area.

    For those interested in outside activities, there's no other better place than this. You can walk, walk your dog, jog, run, run your bike, sunbathe or simply sit quietly in one place and watch the nature and birds, occasional ferries and helicopters flying by. In the evenings during weekends free movies are screened or live music. The place is wheel chair friendly.

    Walk, run, ride your bike on this beautiful stretch of well manicured landscape. The scenery is quiet, yet serene. I mostly come here during the summer sunset to soak in the views of the Hudson River. Sit back on the lawn or look beyond the pier. It's a great place to experience the quietness, plus no mosquitoes!

    Very peaceful, friendly area. Love to watch the boats on the water. It has been recently redone and has a grassy are for sitting and stuff. Looks so nice.

    Here's a dedicated open space that has a great view of the river. Perfect for walking, activities, small picnics, reading and enjoying the outdoors away from the hustle and bustle.

    Walk, run, ride your bike on this beautiful stretch of well manicured landscape. The scenery is quiet, yet serene. I mostly come here just as the sun is about to set to take in the views of the sunset. Sit back on the lawn or look beyond the pier. Enjoy the scenery, sunrise, sunshine and sunset.

    This is such a pretty area to take a walk! It's great for leisure and exercise. I'm definitely bringing a yoga mat next time. I think a picnic would also be a great idea. There are trees and dense grassy areas perfect for sitting. Wherever you settle, you are guaranteed an excellent view. I recommend walking your dog, biking, skating, and bringing kids! There doesn't seem to be quite enough room for a good game of frisbee, but there is definitely kite-flying potential. Lovely spot! Plus, it's FREE!

    Well kept, well maintained, beautiful parks along the West side of Manhattan. There's a bunch of large cement blocks along the bike path since terrorist attack last Halloween, buy what can you do. Great area to run, bike, walk, lay out on the various patches of grass. Great views too, especially One World Trade which looms over the pathway enjoy this gem of New York green space
