Those running along the Tribeca stretch of the Hudson River Park will have an easy time convincing themselves to catch their breath on one of Pier 25’s lounge chairs overlooking the water. Or they could keep their heart rates up by shooting hoops, skating, or playing a few rounds of mini golf. The park, which opened in 2010, boasts a 13,000 square foot course, complete with streams, sand traps, and footbridges. Needless to say, kids love it! There’s also a playground, where older children tackle the climbing wall while the little ones get pushed in the modern style swings. With options like these, it may just be the best park south of 14th Street (and west of Elizabeth Street)!
