“Music at sunset.......wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2014

A special music event was amped up by the beautiful sunset backdrop overlooking the Hudson River. What a wonderful evening a one of the largest parks in NYC. Park staff were really nice and helpful. Restaurant had closed early but heard they had a nice brunch. To explore the entire park you will need some good sneakers because this place is huge. There is a lower level as well but steps can be a challenge. Elevator was not working. parking in the area was a challenge. Main entrance at 145th St. and Riverside Dr. Overall a really nice day's adventure.

“Picnic at and walk the promenade at the Riverbank State Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Riverbank State Park has one of the most beautiful promenades atop the Hudson River and there are picnic tables under the trees overlooking the Hudson. This is an active park with all kinds of activities for all ages at different times of the day and night. It is also a unique engineering feat that incorporates the active park on top of a waste water treatment facilty that does not smell(I have personal experience since I have enjoyed the park at all times and weather for over a dozen years). The sights of the Hudson, Palisades and George Washington Bridge are are magnificent and the facilities of the park are very clean and accessible to all since most are free and others like the swimming pool and skating rink prices are $2.00 for the pool and $5.00 for the rink. There is a good restaurant and the security provided at the park is by the NYS Park Police who are very friendly and professional. It is easily accessible by the # 1 line(red) subway stops at Broadway Ave. 137 and 145 streets. The buses are M11(Sex and the City) and Bx 19(Bronx Zoo and Botanical Gardens) direct to the park while other buses stop in Broadway. i have traveled extensively and this is a unique view and experience.
