Construction & Updates in the Park
Due to the weather, the temporary closure of the Chelsea Waterside Play Area will continue through November 17. Thank you for your patience.
As of October 2018, the popular play areas at Piers 25 and 51 in Hudson River Park will be closed as we improve safety for the children at play. The play area surface areas will be restored after years of use and exposure to the element. Both play areas are scheduled to re-open by summer 2019. Also, sections of Pier 45 will be closed as we repair pavers in the seating area and improve the soil to better support the pier’s mature trees. Work on Pier 45 is also expected to be complete by summer 2019. Thank you in advance for your patience during the construction process.
Hudson River Park Bike Path
The NYS State Dept. of Transportation has installed a permanent new security gate on 24th street in Chelsea. This security control will be located in the planted buffer area between the bikeway and roadway and will allow for the removal of some of the temporary concrete barriers previously placed on the bikeway near that location. The installation will take place at night to minimize disturbance to cyclists and pedestrians. Due to heightened security measures, take extra precautions when riding on the bikeway. The concrete barriers are in place are for your safety but make certain areas of the bikeway more narrow than in the past. Follow the rules of the road and stay in your lane.
Use common sense, plan accordingly, and adjust your route when necessary. Be mindful of Park staff working on the bikeway.
