NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

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.
