Designed by the award-winning OLIN, this 4,000 square foot marine-science focused playground will be a place for children to learn, play and be inspired by wildlife and the Hudson River Habitat.

The Pier 26 Science Play Area was made possible by a $3.5 million Capital Campaign completed by Hudson River Park Friends in 2021, anchored by a historic $1.3 million Challenge Match by former Friends Board Chair Michael E. Novogratz.
