The Playground Committee supports:

Play Areas

The Park’s innovative Play Areas provide safe and imaginative environments for exercise, play and making friends. Funds help renovate, maintain and care for the playgrounds, a top priority for Hudson River Park.

Hudson River Park is home to some of the most heavily used recreational fields and courts in Manhattan, accommodating a wide variety of sports including soccer, lacrosse, football, rugby, baseball and more.

Environmental Education

Whether it is providing educational K-12 school field trips, summer camp sessions or enrichment activities for children, the Park’s hands-on learning experiences make our mission of environmental stewardship a community affair.

Family Programs

Providing a wide range of free or low-cost cultural, fitness and educational programs and events throughout the year, especially for children, is one of  the Park’s proudest achievements.
