Hudson River Park Tours

star-5
32 Reviews
Hudson River Park
A hidden gem on New York City's west side, Hudson River Park includes more than 500 acres of protected urban parkland. Find a range of activities to enjoy, from riding the park's carousel to playing pickup basketball. Perhaps the best choice is a stroll or bike ride, since the park boasts four miles of waterfront.

The Basics
Hudson River Park is expansive, running from Chambers Street in Lower Manhattan to West 59th Street, off Columbus Circle. The park offers recreational areas, bike paths, sports facilities, and dog parks. Because of its size, many guided neighborhood tours pass by or through it. Bike (or e-bike) tours are ideal, since you can cover the park's waterfront quickly on protected cycling paths.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Hudson River Park is the longest riverfront park in the US, and includes a greenway—a dedicated area for walking and biking.
  • Kids enjoy the playground at Waterside Park on 24th Street.
  • Sports fans should check out Chelsea Piers to try skating or hitting balls at the batting cages.
  • Glimpse the park from the water on a Hudson River cruise; tours are typically offered throughout the day, and some provide drinks and dinner.

How to Get There
Hudson River Park covers a long swath of Manhattan, from Greenwich Village to Midtown West. Through you can pop in at several locations, your best bet is starting near the south end. Arrive at 40 Hudson River Greenway via subway. Take the 1 or 2 train to Houston Street. Alternatively, you can take the A, B, C, D, E, or F trains to West 4 Street-Washington Square.

When to Get There
Most public areas of the park close daily at 1am, and playgrounds close at dusk, but the bike path remains open to cyclists 24 hours a day. The park is an ideal place to soak up the sun in June, July, and August. In winter, expect winds blowing off the Hudson, so dress for cold weather. To avoid the crowds, come during the week—the park is busiest on Saturday and Sunday.

Where to View Public Art

Find numerous sculptures on display in Hudson River Park. Highlights include a monument to the LGBTQ community, located on 12th Street, and Long Time, a working water wheel at 26th Street. For a taste of history, check out the 1960s ceramic mural inside Pier 40, created by artist Frank Nix, which calls back to the era when Holland-America line ships departed the terminal.
