Hudson River Park Pier 51 – Play in New York City Summer Series

Hope everyone enjoyed a FUN Memorial Day weekend!

This weekend we took a little time to venture out into the city and visit one of our favorite downtown NYC play spaces, the Pier 51 Play Space at Hudson River Park.  My family loves taking long walks along the water’s edge while enjoying the downtown city views.  There’s so much to see here, from water fountains to gardens, NYC skyscrapers to New Jersey across the river, the ferries and water taxis traveling up and down the waterway, and occasionally we’ll even spot a cruise ship making its way into the harbor.  Looking out and spotting the Statue of Liberty is an extra special treat and my son loves it every time!  We also love looking up and admiring the new Freedom Tower, so many memories of what once stood there…

The playground here is especially FUN! So much to do, from the sprinklers to the huge sand box, the monkey bars to the cool climbing equipment, this place has something for every kid!  Me, I just love sitting back, enjoying the city views and watching the kiddies play. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and hope you’ll come back soon to check out the next NYC spot we’ll be visiting this summer.  In the meantime, you can check out this little sneak-peak into some of the other NYC places we LOVE.

    I’ve never been to New York, but it’s on my bucket list. It’s so nice to see these pics of family things to do because on TV all I ever see are buildings, buildings and more buildings lol. Who knew that in the mist of all of those buildings there was a playground as awesome as this one.
