A quiet oasis in the middle of New York City, a place to get away from the hectic pace, people-watch, hike or just ride a bike.

This is a huge park at the upper tip of Manhattan where you will find the Cloisters, which is part of the Met Museum. Go to the Cloisters and walk through the park.

Very pretty park. Hilly, but the hills are gradual, not too steep. There are steps if you’d like to take them, but lots of sloping paths to get around them. Near the cloisters, reviewed separately. Pretty garden space called the Billings Lawn. I went here to see the Billings Arcade, remnants of a grand mansion that used to reside here (just under the lawn). Pretty views of the river. Lots of places to rest, sit, reflect. Nice urban oasis, especially as part of a day at the Cloisters!

I love Fort Tyron Park in Upper Manhattan. It is the most beautiful park in New York City with its rolling hills, beautiful gardens, views of the Hudson River and the home of the Cloisters Museum. It has so much to offer.

The nice thing about the park is that it is nice to visit at any time of the year. The views of the Hudson River from the paths gives it an appeal that no other park in the City has even Central Park.

Make an excuse to visit the Cloisters on a nice afternoon and just walk around Ann Loftus Park and watch the kids play and the families talk. Then take the paths up and explore the hills. You will be stuck by its beauty.

Really lovely park, some great walks that run alongside the Hudson River, plenty of wild life to be seen and lots of informative information posted around, felt very safe place to be and really beautiful in the sunshine

Finding our way from the subway station to the Cloisters, we took a rather roundabout route through Fort Tryon Park. It was sunny and (for the season) mild, and we enjoyed the view across the Hudson River. Strongly recommended, especially if you are planning to visit the Cloisters.

This was well worth the trip into Upper Manhattan to take full advantage of The Met ticket which is good for 3 consecutive days. The park is beautiful along the Hudson River and a nice contrast to the big city vibe of most of Manhattan. The Cloisters museum was not like anything I'd experienced and I very much appreciated the thought that went into the preservation and arrangement of art there.

Beautiful gardens, paths, and view of the Hudson River. Uncrowded. Off-the-beaten path gem. I like this park better than Central Park. Combine a visit here with the cloisters museum.

Fort Tryon Park is of the best parks in NYC. It is home to the Cloisters part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Battle of Fort Washington, a great cafe/restaurant, and offers some of the best views of the Hudson River.
The Fort Tryon Park Trust does an excellent job of maintaining the park and sponsors excellent free events.
I highly recommend the yearly Medieval Festival.
