Riverside Park Virtual Tour

12) Riverside Park South

Riverside Park South is the largest new greensward along the west side of Manhattan .

These seven acres of parkland are the first of 27.5, which will be developed between 72nd and 59th streets.

The current park design includes athletic facilities as well as areas for quiet reflection. Three basketball courts, two handball courts, and a soccer field invite athletes, young and old, to hone their skills. A promontory, esplanade, and winding walkway welcome visitors who wish to enjoy nature and experience the river. Pier I, a 715-foot recreational pier, is built atop the remains of the original wooden shipping pier. Visitors to the pier are surrounded by the river almost completely, experiencing a view of Manhattan and New Jersey once reserved for sailors. Since opening in 2000, Riverside Park South has offered a variety of public programming including concerts, wellness classes and children's events that reflect local interests and take full advantage of the striking recreational opportunities the Hudson offers.
