Stretching four miles from 72nd to 158th streets along the Hudson River, Riverside Park is regarded by many as Manhattan's most spectacular waterfront park. Since 1875, the landscapes of Frederick Law Olmsted have offered escape from the city and opportunities for people of all incomes to relax, play, and socialize in tranquil settings.
