An undiscovered gem of the city. Just a great park, plenty of room, trails and great views, and the Cloisters are a fun trip as well. Recommended.
Who would had thought that such a beautiful park is located in New York City close to George Washington bridge. We'll manicured gardens adorn the vast grounds. Bring comfortable shoes and walk the windy pathways taking in the surrounding beauty of Hudson River and the Palisade cliffs. Heck come hungry and enjoy a great dinner at the New Leaf restaurant...

Ft. Tryon Park is a genuine garden of delights. From the fascinating medieval Cloisters to its magnificent Hudson River views, and with The New Leaf Cafe on premises offering indoor and outdoor seating (somewhat pricey but you can stroll a few blocks south on Ft. Washington Ave to 187th Street where the locals dine), this is a part of Manhattan... More
I strolled through this park on the way to and from the Cloisters, and it was a beautiful walk. You really feel removed from the city, and it isn't too crowded, being a bit off the beaten path. There are several pathways you can take to get to the same destination, so it's a place you could explore many times... More
The park was beautiful. We took the subway uptown and walked through the park to reach the Cloisters. The scenic views of the Hudson were nice. There were lots of flowers and little places to nestle in and relax and find some peace and quiet. I'm glad that we approached the museum from that direction. Living in a bedroom community,... More
This park is gorgeous. there are many paths and parts of it wild and other parts have manicured lawns and gardens. It is overlooking the Hudson River and is a very scenic park. It is a unique park and a peaceful oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city.
I visited Fort Tryon Park for a free concert held by the Scandinavian Orchestra, on a Sunday afternoon. The park was quiet, but there were certainly many families having picnics. Lots of flowers and trees, seems the exact opposite of the rest of Manhattan. There is a bus stop and subway stop exactly at the entrance. Although I didn't try... More
Bequeathed by John D. Rockefeller, this city haven is always quiet with breathtaking command of the Hudson River along the Jersey cliffs, above Washington Bridge, that can be enjoyed from benches on various paths that wander up and down a well-manicured but well-forested butte. It offers a magnificent approach to the Cloisters. From the east side, you can look down... More
I live close to Fort Tryon Park, yet still visit and admire the beauty of this park at least once a week. At this time of year, all of the flowers in the heather garden are blooming. The views over the Hudson River and George Washington Bridge are stunning. I bring all friends and family up to this park, all... More
We traveled through this park on the way to The Cloisters and really enjoyed the beautiful view of the Hudson River and the George Washington bridge. It had recently snowed when we visited, which made it that much nicer. It is just a (long) subway ride from lower Manhattan. It definitely is off the beaten path, but it was a... More
