Must-See Parks in New York City Other Than Central Park

October 31, 2021
There's reason to believe that Central Park is probably the most famous park, not just in New York, but in the entire world. Not only is it a must-visit in the Big Apple, but it's also been featured in countless movies, TV series, and has hosted all sorts of events, some of which are even historical. But be that as it may, it bears noting that Central Park isn't the only park with visiting in New York. There's a slew of others you might want to check out while you're in the city. You never know how much you'll enjoy your time there when you do!

Must-See Parks in New York City Other Than Central Park


The High Line

One of the newer parks in the city, the High Line Park in the Lower West Side of Manhattan is definitely not like all the others. For one thing, the park is perched atop elevated railway tracks that have long been unused for quite a while. Who knew that these rustic steel structures would prove to be the perfect setting for a new park and walkway that offer fantastic views of the city. Although the High Line is more used as. bridge than an actual park, you can't help but spend time basking in the sprawling metropolis that is New York City from this vantage point!

Brooklyn Bridge Park

Speaking of parks with amazing views, Brooklyn Bridge Park has long been the number one park for that before the High Line came along. Set in the Brooklyn borough of the city, a stone's throw away from the hipster havens and the luxury homes, this rustic patch of botanical bliss is everything. Spend time under the sun on the luscious fields right by the Hudson River. Or rest under the shade of the many trees planted here, made to replicate a woodland feel. And, of course, bask in the glory of the Brooklyn Bridge from this viewpoint.

Bryant Park

Going back to Manhattan, right along Fifth Avenue, Bryant Park is the place to take a break amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Although it's way smaller than Central Park, this place is surprisingly often busier, with businessmen taking cigarette breaks, families taking a stroll, kids playing about, and more. Located right behind the New York Public Library, many tourists who visit the said attraction often escape to this place to take a break too. And over the years, Bryant Park has hosted a ton of events, ranging from New York Fashion Week to all sorts of concerts and the like.

Washington Square Park

Apart from the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building, the Washington Square Arch is actually among the most popular sights to see in New York City. And it's the most famous landmark in Washington Square Park, another busy hangout spot in the city. Located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Lower Manhattan, this is where you'll see street performers, drawing artists, and a ton of youngins goofing around and living life. While Bryant Park has the more upscale and corporate big wigs, this park has the more bohemian set. That alone should tell you why Washington Square Park is a great place to visit!

Riverside Park

Finally, there's Riverside Park, argubaly the most beautiful park in all of New York City. Located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, right alongside the Hudson River, it's easy to get to via public transport. And going here is definitely worth the effort once you see what's in store! Though Riverside Park is more famous for its sports courts and jogging pathways, the botanical beauty in this place is second to none. Think bright pink cherry trees, shaded walkways, and well-maintained grass fields. You'd sooner think you weren't in an urban city once you get lost in the botanical bliss of it all!
