Join us on Gansevoort Peninsula and take a tour from our salt marsh to our tide pools.

Gansevoort Peninsula, which opened in 2023, is the largest stand-alone recreational space in Hudson River Park with its 5.5 acres of incredible public green space. From a sandy shoreline beach with tide pools to a pine grove, pile field and salt marsh, it is also one of the most fascinating sites to learn about local ecology.

During Shoreline Strolls, you’ll have the chance to learn more about these fascinating ecosystems from our River Project team. Grab your binoculars and try to spot some of the shorebirds seen regularly dabbling in our salt marsh, or see if you can spot some of the resident hawks that use the light poles (and sometimes even on the inspiring Day’s End public art installation, which was donated to Hudson River Park by the Whitney Museum of American Art) as a perch to find their next meal.
