    Awesome park
    Lovely little park in the middle of Manhattan. Many chairs and park benches for you to hang out and read a book. The picnic area is very nice but I’d check on their website before planning to go because lawns are often closed after it has rained the day before.

    Small Park
    On my travels around New York I discovered loads of small parks dotted around the city. It's great that there are so many of these around so that people can use them to meet up, walk their dogs or just relax and enjoy nature. Madison Square Park which is not too far from Madison Square Garden is in the shadow of the famous Flat Iron Building and a perfect place to sit and pause and admire the architecture as well as the bustle of people going here and there.

    Great park in the middle of Manhattan
    One of my favorite parks in the city. They always have cool art installations and it’s a great picnic spot in the summer. Dog park is great. Also you can see some notable buildings like Empire State, Flatiron, and NY Life Building.

    Beautiful small park surrounded by the hustle & bustle of the city! Two dog parks are situated inside the park as well as lots of benches, & walking areas! There was an art sculpture set up as of Feb 2024 that was beautiful to check out!

    Manhattan Parks
    Speaking from a tourist POV, I think all parks in Manhattan are great. Being that I’m a sucker for NYC architecture, I came here to take in the view of the Flatiron building. Conveniently, there is an indoor market across the street where we can grab a bite to eat or a drink, sit at the park and people watch. We don’t own a dog; however, we saw a dog park section. The attached pic happens to be of the building where Chelsea Clinton and J Lo live or lived.

We stopped quickly and I took a few quick pics - I was trying to get a good picture of the flatiron building but unfortunately it's being renovated/restored so it is shrouded... so not the great photo opp I was hoping for - and instead was just a quick walk through a park

Madison Square Park is a nice park next to the Flatirom Building. There is a reflecting pool, statues, monuments, and even a dog run. I recommend going here.

One of quite a few parks in NYC that is well organised and kept in pretty mint condition with activities for both humans and dogs.
