Roughly 850 benches are situated throughout Hudson River Park, each offering a peaceful perch and unique viewpoint for enjoying the Park’s riverfront beauty.

Select benches are now being offered for dedication, allowing donors a unique spot amongst our four miles to call their very own — the perfect way to make a gift, celebrate an occasion, honor a birth or commemorate a loved one.

All funds raised through Bench Dedications directly benefit our Park’s maintenance, programming and operational needs, as we rely on private contributions to sustain and grow this invaluable waterfront green space.

To dedicate your bench, and for more information, please contact: benches@hudsonriverpark.org, 212-757-0981 x730.
