Hudson River Park Update Regarding COVID-19

The health and well-being of our community is of the utmost importance to us, and we continue to closely monitor this evolving health concern under the leadership of New York State and New York City.

At this time, the majority of Hudson River Park remains OPEN.  However, in an effort to limit crowding in public spaces, Hudson River Park has implemented the following measures with regard to COVID-19 (Coronavirus):

  • At this time, all programming has been suspended through April 30, 2020.
  • All basketball courts, skate parks, tennis courts, Chelsea Waterside athletic field, all dog runs (Tribeca, Leroy Street, Chelsea Waterside and Pier 84), and Playgrounds at Piers 25 & 51 and Chelsea Waterside are closed.
  • Recreational permits for sports field use at Pier 25, Pier 40 and Chelsea Waterside are suspended until further notice.
  • HRPK Community Compost food scrap drop-off sites are closed.
  • Pier 40 Courtyard Restrooms & Pier 51 North Comfort Station are closed.

Closing any portion of the Park is always a difficult decision.  We are taking these steps to help Park visitors stay healthy and safe, and to help prevent the spread of disease.  Despite these closures, Hudson River Park still offers four miles of waterfront paths where you can enjoy the beauty of the Hudson River and the plants that are emerging each day with the coming of Spring.  Please enjoy the Park safely, including maintaining social distancing.

We continue to coordinate with emergency preparedness and response efforts and will provide additional updates as the situation develops. We encourage you to check this page regularly for any updates on Park operations.
