Hunters South Park is amazing, it's not completely full of tourists you can actually get away and feel like you are in your own private park. The views fantastic saw lots of people enjoying their day and even found a nice pier... More

Wish we could wake up to this view every day, but took full advantage of every minute we had on our weekend visit. The park is a great place for an evening stroll with the family. Snag an ice cream or crepes at a food truck while you take in the view of Manhattan in the sunset as the sky... More

I really love this park, and it is an obligated visit when we have friends and family coming over. A few blocks from the Vernon Blvd Station (Line 7) and you get to one of the most incredible views on Manhattan. It has a great playground for kids and a huge open space for playing soccer, so if you have... More

Hunters Point South Park, just like Gantry, is an awesome place to spend time with your family and friends. Not only can you have picnics, but you can also ride on the East River Ferry all the way down to Governor's Island. It does not any better than this. Food is sold, and there is also music. Finally, you can... More

It is a beautiful park and a great place to share a good time with friends. In summer is great!! The place have many stores where you can sit and drink a beer, enjoying the amazing view of Manhattan. I mean, it is a great alternative to expend a day in NY!,

Took my two kids to the playground and was amazed with the backdrop: Manhattan skyline. I would've brought change clothes since it has some water playing area, but I have no way to dry them easily in the hotels that we were staying in.. so had to fight my kids to not play with the water.
