Located in the Hudson River Park, the playground at Pier 51 is an oasis on hot summer days. It boasts interactive water play structures including sprinklers, slides, and a pretend boat hull. The water features are turned off in cooler weather, but with swings, monkey bars, huge jungle gyms, a sandbox, and viewing posts, the park is bound to entertain year round. The playground boasts pristine bathrooms and ice cream vendors always sit right outside the gate.
