Carl Schurz Park

East End Av To East River, E 84 St To E 90 St

Manhattan

Directions via Google Maps

This picturesque park, partially hidden along the East River, is one of the city's best-concealed secrets. A stroll along the promenade provides beautiful views of the river, the Roosevelt Island Lighthouse, the Triborough Bridge, Randall’s and Wards islands, and, of course, Gracie Mansion, the 18th century mansion that serves as the Mayor's official residence.

Carl Schurz Park is one of the city's most dog-friendly--two dog runs offer plenty of space for pups to run around and mingle, while the promenade offers a lovely place to stroll, with or without a furry companion. A playground at the end of the park holds fun for kids of all ages.

The park's plentiful green space is a lovely place for reading, picnicking, people-watching, and, when the weather gets nice, sunbathing. With all this, Carl Schurz is certainly a great escape from the bustling city.
