Hudson River Park UnGala

Every fall, Hudson River Park’s most loyal supporters come together at our Annual Gala for one unifying purpose: to keep the Park beautiful, safe, clean, green and growing.

This year, more than ever before, Hudson River Park’s four+ miles of open space have provided an essential source of wellbeing and strength – a lifeline for New Yorkers – lifting our spirits in the face of great adversity.

We invite you to show your appreciation for all that the Park provides our community with an at-home celebration of our vital urban oasis. Your support ensures that this incomparable New York City treasure continues to thrive and grow for generations.
