Gantry Plaza State Park

Gantry Plaza State Park is a 12-acre riverside state park that boasts spectacular views of the midtown Manhattan skyline, including the Empire State Building and the United Nations.

Industrial monuments that were once used to load and unload rail car floats and barges are now centerpieces along the piers, along with the famed Pepsi-Cola sign that was located on top of the bottling plant before it was dismantled and reassembled into a permanent location within the park in 2009.

Relax away from the bustle of the city and a stressful work environment. The outdoor greenery includes:

  • modern benches
  • running pathways
  • riverside restaurants
  • waterfront spaces
  • scenic views
  • basketball courts
  • playgrounds
  • handball courts
  • fishing pier

All dogs are welcome to the Garden area near the South Gantry on Pier 1 from 8AM to 10PM. Make sure to respect the neighborhood and clean up after your pet. There is also an available dog run on the corner of 48th Ave. and Vernon Blvd. Pets are prohibited where signs indicate.
