Hudson River Park Benchmarkers

Roughly 850 benches are situated throughout Hudson River Park, as varied in their form and function as our Park’s sections and the diverse communities they serve.

Select benches are now being offered for dedication, allowing donors a unique spot amongst our four miles of Park 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 directly benefit our Park’s maintenance and operational needs, as we rely on private contributions to sustain and grow this invaluable waterfront treasure.
