Alerts & Advisories

Due to the weather, the temporary closure of the Chelsea Waterside Play Area will continue through November 17.  Thank you for your patience.

Hudson River Park is improving the playgrounds at Piers 25 and 51. The safety surfaces at both playgrounds require restoration after years of heavy use and exposure to the elements. During the restoration process, contractors will also improve drainage, apply protective sealants and make other miscellaneous repairs needed for a combination of safety and maintenance reasons.  These improvements will ensure that the playgrounds remain a safe place for children to play. Both playgrounds 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 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.

Pier 40 - Picnic House and Finger Pier are closed until further notice


NYS and NYC have worked together to install temporary barricades along the entire bikeway.  Cyclists are cautioned to slow down at intersections, to stay in lanes and to watch for pedestrians crossing.  Pedestrians are asked to use the separate esplanade wherever possible.
