Fodor's Review

What started as a scenic but small hilltop park beneath the Manhattan Bridge has turned into a sweeping feat of green urban renewal stretching from the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO to the Brooklyn Bridge and south all the way to Pier 6, carpeting old industrial sites along the waterfront with scenic esplanades and lush meadows. The park has playgrounds, sports fields, food concessions, a beach, a pop-up pool, and lots of grass for lounging. You can access the park at various points, including Main Street, for the Main Street Playground; Old Dock Street, off Water Street, for the wonderfully restored Jane's Carousel; Old Fulton Street, for the popular Fulton Ferry Landing and Pier 1; Old Squibb Park Bridge, off Columbia Heights, for Piers 1 and 2; and Joralemon Street, for Piers 5 and 6.
