“A Landmark”
Review of Inwood Park

Inwood Park
Ranked #591 of 1,153 things to do in New York City
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 December 2012

I have years visiting this park and many memories that accompany those visits. But I always remember coming here on school trips and past the swing sets, the slides and the baseball fields there are quiet paths. Through these paths my elementary school teachers would always point out the caves(that are still there today) where the Native Americans use to live.

In the summer the park is full of children engaging in games of tag, joggers, mothers pushing strollers and crowds of people cheering the local baseball team. The park also has two main playgrounds for children(sprinklers and sand boxes), a basketball court and a tennis court. Past the main area of the park there is a little bridge(toward 218th st) where grilling is allowed in the summer time. The view of the Hudson river is simply to die for.

Not very many people go up to this idyllic spot - on the Northern Tip of Manhattan Island. The hiking trails give you a chance to completely escape from the Urban Blur and the elevated views of Spuyten Duyvel and the Hudson are not to be believed.

Great in all Seasons!

March and April are great months to explore Inwood park--all the bulbs and trees are blooming. There are plenty of paved walkways at the base of the park and jogging trails that go higher into the hills that overlook the Harlem River and the Henry Hudson Bridge. There are many baseball diamonds and lots of amateur games of all ages to view--There is a newly renovated children's playground off Indian Hill road. There is a nice sized tidal pool where many different types of water fowl can be viewed in warmer months the Inwood Park Nature Center hosts canoeing. The center also has a nice display of Local Wildlife and bathrooms are available inside.
This park is 3 blocks west of Broadway you can walk 218th to find retail and restaurants.

Sure, Central Park is great. I love it just like every other new yorker, but if you are a tourist and want to see the cool stuff that all of the tourist DON'T flock to, I would suggest going to see this park. It's at the very top of Manhattan and right along the water. There are great paths that lead up through a forest where there are still caves left from years and years ago when the indians lived there. The only thing I would suggest: if you go walking through the forest paths, don't go alone. Although there can sometimes be a fair amount of people back there, it can get a little spooky by yourself.
