Gantry Plaza State Park

Skip Navigation LinksHome : State Parks : Gantry Plaza State Park

Gantry Plaza State Park is a 12-acre riverside oasis that boasts spectacular views of the midtown Manhattan skyline, including the Empire State Building and the United Nations. Enjoy a relaxing stroll along the park's four piers or through the park's manicured gardens and unique mist fountain. Along the way take a moment to admire the rugged beauty of the park's centerpieces - restored gantries. These industrial monuments were once used to load and unload rail car floats and barges; today they are striking reminders of our waterfront's past. With the city skyline as a backdrop and the gantries as a stage, the park's plaza is a wonderful place to enjoy a spring or summer concert.  Recreational facilities include basketball courts, playgrounds, handball courts, and a fishing pier with its own cleaning table.

Cooking grills of any kind and cooking are prohibited in the Park at all times.
