Battery Park is where you can catch a boat to the Statue of Liberty and another to Statin Island. It is a park on the water at the tip of Manhattan. In warmer weather the people come out in droves. Good place to get some air.

We walked through the park on our way to the Statue of Liberty. It was a nice park, and felt relaxing to walk through. We enjoyed looking out over the Hudson as another sight to see. The memorials in the park are great to enjoy also.

Went in February so it was very cold and wet, which isn't the park's fault. Needed to go there to catch the ferry to the statue of Libery. Would love to visit again on a warm sunny day.

Battery Park is not as big as you might think, but it's very cool. They have a ton of things from 9/11 set up in memorial.

Be careful because the park is under construction. The walkways are not level or paved. It is a nice Memorial and will be pleasant to visit after it is finished. There are many carts with items for sale around the perimeter of the park.

Went in March so not only was the place devoid of any greenery the place was also one large building site whilst they refurbished the place and repaired damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. Still, needed to go there to get the ferry for the Statue of Liberty. Would like to see it again once it has been restored to its... More

Although this park is under a bit of construction you can still enjoy the memorial to our servicemen who "rest in the waters of the Atlantic". The sculpture is lovely. There is also Castle Clinton and another beautifully done sculpture paying tribute to early immigrants. Looking forward to seeing it all finished.

I can't really rate the park as their is a lot of construction going on, we walked through to catch a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty at sunset (which was amazing by the way). Their is a piece of the World Trade Centre that is being mounted which I think will be a nice place to reflect when it... More

Battery Park is located on the southern shore of Manhattan and looks out onto New York Harbor, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and New Jersey in one place. The park is a tree enclosed area with great views and a break from the bustle of the city. Sit on a bench and watch the people or just... More

So, If you decide to head down here and maybe partake in watching the break dancers and decide to purchase a hotdog from a local vendor..beware of the gangster sea gulls.. they popped my husband on the head making him drop his hotdog- at which point they snatch the food and gobble it up :/ Still amusing.
