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.
Leashed dogs are permitted in the Garden area near the South Gantry, the Plaza area in front of the Gantries and on Pier 1 from 8 AM to 10 PM. Please clean up after your pet.
There is a dog run available on the corner of 48th Ave. and Vernon Blvd. Pets are prohibited where indicated by sign.
