Pier 25 In Tribeca

It’s hard to believe I’ve never wrote a full post on Pier 25 in Tribeca because my daughter and I have practically lived there this summer. It’s difficult to keep track of everything going on at Pier 25, but here’s my best shot, there is an awesome playground, Blue Marble ice cream {seasonal}, a volleyball court, a soccer field, mini golf and a snack bar, a dock for several historic boats, a new floating oyster bar called Grand Banks {open seasonally from July-Oct.}, and an enclosed skate park. It’s rare to find so many amazing outdoor activities in one space, especially in New York City.

Pier 25 Play Area 
Pier 25’s futuristic-looking playground is awesome, it has several swing sets, a mini rock climbing wall, a dome-shaped jungle gym, a sandbox and a splash park. During the summertime months, the splash park is seriously out-of-this-world-fun with tipping water cans, giant water guns, and various sprinklers and fountains. At the start of the summer my daughter was 15 months and despite getting knocked to the ground on several occasions, she repeatedly had the best day of the her life at the park. Now, as with most things that are awesome, Pier 25 is pretty popular. The best time to visit the playground, especially during the summer months, is early morning from 8-11am.

If the playground isn’t your thing, there is still plenty to do on Pier 25. When I’m tuckered out from chasing my daughter around the playground, I love walking around the pier while taking in views of the Hudson River, New Jersey skyline, and Battery Park City. Additionally, if you visit with small children, the soccer field is rarely used in the mornings throughout the week and serves as a nice space to let the kiddos roam free.

How to get to Pier 25 in Tribeca
Pier 25 is part of Hudson River Park and is located at N. Moore Street and the West Side Highway. If you are traveling via subway, the 1 train {at Canal St.} 2 or 3 trains {Chambers St.} or the A, C, or E trains {Canal St.} will bring you within a 10-15 minute walk to the pier {approx.}.

Know before you go
The public restrooms are located in the building just north of the skate park, the building with a huge SKATE sign on the front. The Blue Marble ice cream window is also located in the building and they only accept cash. Be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and coverage for the kiddos, shade is limited. Lastly, there is a vending machine and snack window at the mini golf that sells treats, but also water and a variety of different beverages.

Pier 25 in Tribeca has one of the best playgrounds in Downtown Manhattan, with awesome Hudson Rivers views, this is a must-see destination if you visit New York City with kids!
