Gallery: Newport Green is the Hudson River’s Only Urban Beach

Newport Green is one of the largest mixed-use waterfront parks in the United States, and the only in proximity to New York City, not to mention the views!

Newport Green’s beach is perfect for building sandcastles, sun bathing or reading a book in an Adirondack chair under one of the colorful umbrellas on the beach while enjoying the breeze off the Hudson River. The beach is also surrounded by a classic boardwalk, with shaded gazebos and sitting areas of visitors to enjoy.

The kids can keep cool at the miniature water park that joins a 17,000 square foot playground. Jungle gyms and a rope web climbing offer hours of fun for kids and adults can play ping pong at one of the outdoor tables, or use the park’s free Wifi connection.

The grounds are landscaped with lush planted gardens in different themes that accentuate native plants. A fragrance garden incorporates carefully chosen blooms, while the butterfly garden features plants that attract wild butterflies. A traditional rose garden also offers a place to read a book or relax.

Newport Green is also home to a giant 30,000 square foot multi-use field providing space for soccer, football, baseball and volleyball games. The field is made from 100% eco-friendly turf made from recycled plant fibers, which keeps moisture in and temperatures cool.
