A quaint beautiful park nestled in the UES right along the East River. Complete with everything you could ask for in a park—big dog run, small dog run, basketball courts, beautiful trees, a large walkway along the river (perfect for watching sunsets), sprawling areas of grass, and more! It’s one of my favorite parks in the city. Not as expansive as Central Park but definitely makes up for it with its character and charm! My pup loves it too! Definitely check it out!
Great views, never super crowded even on the best weather days. Two separate dog parks. Will be even better once they finish the construction and allow access from the promenade to the ferry - for now you have to exit the park to East End and walk along the sidewalk and a bunch of temporary steps to get to the ferry
