Important Winter Storm-Related Service Changes

New York City parks are now open. We continue to urge caution in parks under wintry conditions: parks paths can be slippery, snow cover can cover frozen lakes and bodies of water, and branches may have fallen. If you see a fallen branch call 311.

Some recreation centers will open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today with limited staffing.

For more information, please visit our Storm Update page.

River Avenue Parks

Directions via Google Maps

Located south of Yankee Stadium and Heritage Field, along the No. 4 line, River Avenue Parks was created in association with the construction of the new Yankee Stadium.

Once a parking lot, the park area now consists of a pocket playground and skate plaza. The skate plaza was designed with input from the skateboarding community and features half-pipes, ramps, stairs, rails, ledges, benches, banks, gaps and transitioned elements in a plaza setting.
