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.

Playground with water features was named "Runner Up" as the "Best Playground Worth Traveling to" by Time-Out New York, this exciting playground features climbing equipment and slides, water and sand play, a pretend boat hull, and benches. Open all year, but water features are turned off seasonally.

From Time-Out New York: "Especially in warm weather, when the park's elaborate sprinkler system provides kids with a thorough soaking (as well as a canal to paddle in), this riverside playground is a paradise."

Viewing scopes at the end of the pier offer views of passing watercraft and the New Jersey shoreline.
