This is a great place to sit back and relax on the water with panoramic views. The view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is excellent. You can watch the ferries or hop on one from here. There are some places to eat as well as several street vendors in the area. There are also some memorials in... More

I did not take enough time there, and after checking some picture on the internet, I realized I missed a lot of tings there. It´s a great spot for pictures and of course the cruise to the Statue is there. I am sorry that was in a hurry. The cruise tour takes a lot of time, Get there early so... More

The park is a nice park to sit and watch the boats and the people. There are plenty of benches to sit and relax. There were street performers and plenty of places to grab and bite to eat or a drink.

Messy park due to the numbers going for ferry, buses etc. I wouldn't specifically put this on a list of things to do but there's a nice walk from here blip the west side of TriBeCa toward an unassuming Famine Memorial.

There was a good amount that seemed to be blocked off so maybe it was just the time of the year, but I thought it was just ok.

Visited in winter so it didn't look that much and there were renovations going on, which didn't help either, but it’s still a nice park with a lot to offer and you can imagine that it would look very nice in the warmer months. A gateway to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Staten Island, the NY Water taxi,... More

Since our hotel, The Ritz Carlton, was adjacent to Battery Park, we walked into & by the Park daily during our trip to NYC. Bordering NY Harbor, the Park affords the best spot to relax & view the sunset & the glow of the Lady's torch in the distance. Once work is completed to the Park & make shift walkways... More

After visiting the emotional 9/11 Memorial, we took a short walk to battery park. My 3 year old had a blast at the playground, there was even a small water area! Another feature was that you had a view of the Statue of Liberty!
