Lovely little area that seemed to attract many. A man was playing his guitar and singing 60’s songs, which was enjoyable. Little areas for dogs to poo and play. Liked the vibe this place gave off 🙂

...as many of other parks in New York. If you are in the neighbourhood, definitely worth a stroll. But sure, if you've been to Central Park, not really impressing.

I loved this park, it was a lovely sunny cold day when we visited. The park was busy with families, couples, singletons just enjoying the ambience in the park. We sat for ages listening to the music and just people watching, loved it.

Not really much to see here in all honesty and after making a special visit to the park it was quite a let down.

Fantastic park in Greenwich Village. Near tons of shops, restaurants, and bars. Great place for families and kids.

This park is the heart of the N.Y. University main campus. It is always full of people enjoying sports & leisure activities, or just chilling out. Be careful of 3 card monte and other scams being played on gullible passerbyes.

Great park in New York in the area of New York University. One of my favorite places in Manhattan with lots to see and do.

Chilly and windy day was not the greatest day to visit. Grass was brown, trees were bare and no fountain.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

The park is free and is Surrounded by Greenwich Village, which is also interesting to stroll through. It's best to visit the park on a nice day when there are lots of things going on there. Also not far away is Highline... More
