Experience a Day of Play at East River Park

Residents of the One Manhattan Square condos have easy access to John V. Lindsay East River Park, a waterside green space just moments from their Lower East Side homes. As part of the East Side Coastal Resiliency Project, this beloved urban sanctuary is being rebuilt to protect the neighborhood from coastal storms and rising sea levels. Although the segment below Stanton Street will be closed until its anticipated reopening in 2025, the upper expanse remains accessible for sports, picnics, or just plain relaxation.

As the largest green space south of Central Park, East River Park serves as a welcoming respite in the urban landscape and is an integral segment of the East River Esplanade. This network of interconnected parks and pedestrian paths creates a nearly continuous greenway along Manhattan’s eastern shoreline, and promotes physical health, mental well-being, and community engagement.

The northern portion of East River Park offers ample opportunities to stay active and enjoy the outdoors. It features baseball fields, a basketball court, a soccer field, and a running track. Barbecue spots along FDR Drive at East 10th Street are ideal for picnics and get-togethers with friends and family, and scenic pathways by the river’s edge provide cool summer breezes and dramatic views.

For youngster-oriented play days, the East River Playground at East 11th Street and East River Drive offers a secure and stimulating environment for children. It features ground-level and water-based play areas that captivate kids of all ages.

Whether you’re looking for some heated competition on the basketball court or just a leisurely bike ride along the water, the park’s recreational facilities have something for you. The East River Promenade features scenic walking, running, and cycling paths along the waterfront with magnificent views of the river and the Manhattan skyline. The East River Park Track includes an artificial grass field with designated soccer areas, all encircled by a quarter-mile running track. The East River Outdoor Gym offers fitness equipment to ensure a comprehensive workout.

East River Park is accessible via entrances at East Houston Street, Sixth Street Bridge, and 10th Street Bridge. The park is also well connected to public transportation, with nearby subway stations and bus routes ensuring a quick and easy journey. For detailed information about the park’s various fields and courts, including specific activities, locations, and availability, an interactive map is available to assist in planning your visit.
