Riverside Park Review

Riverside Park Riverside Park is the best kept secret in NYC, unless you happen to leave nearby on the upper west side. This park stretches up seemingly endlessly, with beautifully manicured lawns, playgrounds, dog runs, terraces, and waterfront promenades. The community gardens in the blocks parallel to the 80s and 90s are stunning, tranquil places to sit and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, and the hilly stretches of grass are dotted with picturesque stone memorials. The best part: this park is not overcrowded like Central Park. Plenty of room to hear yourself think. This is good for travel blogger to write some inspirational words. One of the best places to travel! One of the cheapest places to travel!

In Manhattan, Riverside Park is only second to Central Park. It is a masterpiece of land use. This ribbon of riverfront land embraces a major highway, the underground NYC - Albany Amtrak Rail Line, clay tennis courts, a dozen play grounds, soccer fields, baseball fields, a skate board park, basketball courts, a small track, a marina. You’ll find Grant’s Tomb, Soldiers and Sailors Monument, and Riverside State Park, which has a 50 meter pool, a soccer pitch, and an ice staking rink, all for a pittance of an entry fee. Go for a walk along Cherry Walk (by the river, 96th to 125th), especially during March and early April. It will take your breath away. Take your dog for a romp at the dog run at 105th or 85th Street. He’ll thank you for it. Check out the statue of Joan of Arc, La Pucelle, on the drive at 93rd Street; she saved France from perfidious Albion. Have a drink at Ellington’s, a bar that operates in season at 105th Street. Venture farther north and you’ll find the Little Red Light House of Swift & Ward fame. I think, Riverside Park is one of the cheapest places to travel, but for me, this is one of the world most beautiful places.

This park is great and goes from 72nd street to 158st. At 72 and 79 street there are restaurants. You can also continue downtown along the park to Battery park. If you head downtown past 72 street you will run into the Intrepid Museum just go past it and keep going down the park will pick up again after you pass the piers. There are many places to eat and bathrooms along the way especially heading downtown. If traveling uptown I suggest not going further than 96 street unless you really want to see the GW Bridge up close. The better sites are downtown. Please leave the park before it gets dark unless your at the restaurants downtown still be careful and aware of your surroundings.

Basically one long scenic park with sylvan lawns, groves of matures elm trees, multifaceted recreational facilities and landscape features I never tire of. I prefer exploring it on my bike on the Hudson River Greenway or the closest path possible to the river permitted by bikes. I have been pulled down by a careening rollerblade and got hooked onto another bike in a cluster. The Greenway is narrow and heavily populated with folks on various kinds of wheels on the weekends, so the best time to pedal is Mon-Fri during the day. The park has undergone a massive transformation and over the last 15 years and has become a 550 acre recreational treasure housing everything from tennis and basketball courts, baseball and soccer fields, skate parks, boat basins, playgrounds, spray fountains, dog runs, museums, monuments, and restaurants. The park has been redeveloped from neglected and underused land to a beautifully landscaped sanctuary. A safe place to sit and relax, go for a walk or play. Take in the New Jersey waterfront, study the hodgepodge of architectural wonders that line the highway separating you from the grid of the city.

I have been to New York before but had not been to Riverside Park before our recent visit. I took the subway from midtown to 125th street and walked back down the west side of Manhattan. It was a glorious morning in early September. There were runners and cyclists aplenty but there was enough room for walkers too. I passed a couple of places to stop for a drink or for food, there were tennis and basketball courts just across the adjacent freeway. There were a few small marinas or jetties with boats dotted along, a number of boats went up the Hudson as did the occasional jet skier It was a long walk but I could not have honestly asked for a more enjoyable setting. Absolutely lovely!
