This kind of parks are a model to follow. There is a place for everybody. My children and I walked along the many options and thought that New York is a lucky place!

“Beautiful!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Beautiful at Christmas. Witnessed a couple getting engaged in from of the Christmas tree. Crowd cheered and clapped making a memoriable moment for this young couple. The evening was cold and drizzly but this didn't keep the crowd away from this beautiful tree and ice rink.

“Battery Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

My ten year old daughter and I loved Battery Park. You can see the Statue of Liberty, take pictures of your children with statues and see live street performances. Also, there is a small water park to cool you off in the summer. Battery Park is situated close to the financial district and only a short walk from the riverfront, Bowling Green and the bull. If you get thirsty there are many high priced vendors, but right around the corner there are small delis that are reasonable.

“it's okay,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

a lot of boats launch from there sightseeing. Otherwise, not much going on. Practically zip as far as restaurants go & water is a rip off.
