Hudson River Park remains open, but many services have been closed down to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus.
The riverside park, which is operated by a public benefit trust, has closed all basketball and tennis courts, skate parks, and dog runs, as well as athletic fields and playgrounds. All scheduled programming has been canceled until at least April 30.
Drop-off sites for HRPK Community Compost food scraps are closed, and restrooms at Pier 40 Courtyard are closed.
Park officials encourage New Yorkers to use the four miles of waterfront paths as long as they practice safe social distancing.
