Hudson River Park Friends’ membership program is called Friends with Benefits for a reason: joining unlocks VIP opportunities, special invitations, discounts at numerous local businesses that take part in our Community Partner Program, and more ways to enjoy your Park while YOU help it thrive.

Hudson River Park is not part of NYC Parks — programming, maintenance and operations of our west side backyard rely on private support — including from Park lovers like you. Hudson River Park Friends is a community of supporters dedicated to the completion, care and enhancement of this beautiful oasis.

By becoming a Member, you help Hudson River Park Friends care for the Park’s four miles of lush green space, protected estuarine waters, beautifully landscaped piers, athletic fields, playgrounds, dog runs and bike paths.

Sign up today — let’s be Friends.
