Looking to spend a fun-filled day with no shortage of activities? A trip to Hudson River Park won’t disappoint. Situated on the West Side of Manhattan on over 550 acres of land spanning from Battery Park to West 59th Street, the number of things to do is hard to keep track of!
If you like being on the water you can choose from kayaking, mooring, rowing, sailing and swimming- all free or reasonably priced! They have a great “Learn to Row” program in the summer where volunteers teach both kids and adults how to row properly, and have fun while doing it!
While you’re in the park, check out the Intrepid Air and Space Museum located at Pier 86 on 46th Street. You’ll learn a thing or two about New York’s sea and air history, and be amazed by the stunning views of Manhattan to boot.
For the sports-minded individual, the Hudson River Park offers baseball, basketball, batting cages, beach volleyball, bicycling, bowling, rock climbing and tennis at Chelsea Piers. Our favorite has to be mini golf, if only for the adorable video they’ve made imitating a real life tournament.
Their 18-hole, 13,000 square foot course (remember- this is only mini golf!) complete with waterfalls, a pond, bridges, and a cave is absolutely breathtaking.
Pooches are welcome at the four dog runs located from Tribeca to Pier 84 at West 44th Street; and luckily dogs are allowed on Seastreak too!
The park is also really kid friendly with its four play areas along the water that will ensure everyone takes a nap on the way home.
Sea you soon,
The Seastreak Family
