Directions to Riverside Park
Know Before You Go
Cherry Walk will be temporarily closed until further notice. Out of an abundance of caution, and due to planned shoreline and path reconstruction work, we will temporarily close the Cherry Walk path in Riverside Park from W. 100th to W. 125th streets. The closure will begin Monday, September 28, 2020. Visitors will be directed to exit the greenway at 100th St. to access alternative paths and local streets. Cyclists may re-enter the greenway at West 153rd Street and Riverside Drive via the Herman “Denny” Farrell Pedestrian Bridge. Pedestrians may re-enter via steps at Tiemann Place that connect Riverside Drive to St. Clair Place. Read more.
