Show your Park pride and support your neighborhood’s backyard!
Our Park’s Clinton and Hell’s Kitchen sections are popular destinations, with peaceful green space, dynamic ways to learn and play, and ample opportunities to get out on the Hudson River.
Along our Park’s northernmost riverfront, Clinton Cove is home to sweeping lawns, kayak excursions, and one of our most striking pieces of #ArtinHRP. A thirty-foot-long bronze and zinc windowed wine bottle, turned on its side, Private Passage features an equally dynamic interior: a replica of a stateroom from the Ocean Liner Queen Mary, rendered in monochromatic metal.
Just south, Hell’s Kitchen is a treasure trove of river-bound adventures with kayak and stand-up paddleboarding at Pier 84, Circle Line at Pier 83, and North River Lobster Company or Hudson’s at Pier 81. You can even take a NY Waterway ferry from Pier 79 – be sure to check out the beautiful, stainless steel sculpture Senes while you’re there!
Pier 86 offers historical and scientific exploration at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Registered as a national historic landmark, the USS Intrepid was launched as an aircraft carrier in World War II. Today its immense, stoic frame towers proudly over this section of our Park.
The gem of our Hell’s Kitchen parklands, Pier 84’s curving lawns and shady groves are a perfect place to picnic or peek the adorable pups at the Pier 84 Dog Park.
Pier 84 is also home to several of the Park’s substantial roster of low-cost and free environmental education programs, using the Hudson River waterfront as its classroom. Field trip programs allow students to interact with the River and Park through enriching and fun activities that inspire the scientist within each student!
Your donation keeps programs like these possible and helps budding scientists continue in their explorations.
