Our daughter and husband live two blocks away and as we were visiting to see our week old granddaughter, this was the perfect place to take her on her first outing, a walk through the park and then a New york "Pie" and soda at the side of the river, pity granddaughter was asleep and missed it!!!

THis is a wonderful oasis in the city. Knowledgeable eatsiders flock here for a respite from the Concrete and giant buildings. There are a number of places where you can get a snack and take it here to enjoy in the "park" I love the feel of true refuge from Noise and confusion.

This park while small is worth a visit. The park sits between the avenue and a walkway which runs along the East River. People bring their larger dogs to the dog run or their smaller ones to a separate little cordoned off area to run and play. Many go to take the sun on the grassy areas. Gracie Mansion (the... More

I grew up near this park and it was a great place as a little kid, teen and now I visit it every time I am back in NYC. It is small and quant. There is always a hog dog stand and ice cream tuck parked outside during the warm weather. There is a doggy area near the river. Also... More

Enjoy a lovely stroll in the park or even write a bike located at the Eastern point of Manhattan along the East River. You can see the lush beauty of a park that is totally maintained by the oldest community-based non profit organization in NYC. The park is lovely and overlooks the East River. You can stroll or even ride... More

I read about this park in Tripadvisor, and decided to go. I went with a book. I drifted between the river, the barges, the ebook, the dogs, the people and NY sounds. Highly recommended.

Carl Schurz park is a small park hidden from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. Beautifully landscaped with a lovely walk along the river, and rarely crowded, it's often times more of an urban oasis than Central Park. About a 15/20 min walk from the subway, so recommended for those who want to "go local" and venture a bit more... More

Carl Schurz Park is not very well known by tourists, but it is a beautiful spot overlooking the East River in the Upper East Side - itself an interesting neighborhood to explore. The mayor himself obviously likes it - Gracie Mansion, his official residence, is within the park (the late 18th-century house is open to visitors with prior appointment). Apart... More

My husband proposed to me here because we love it so much. You get a little bit of everything here. It's by the water, has plenty of grass to picnic in, it's well maintained and the kids certainly seem to love their playgrounds. Theres always families running around. In good weather, we are always at the dog park with our... More

As part of Mayor Bloombergs initiatives to improve the city's green spaces, it should be of no surprise that Carl Schurz Park (next to the Mayor's residence, Gracie Mansion), is an amazing place to relax on a sunny day. Integrated into the greenway that circles Manhattan, Carl Schurz Park is an amazing hidden treasure.
