Park features: An elevated rail line transformed into foliage-lined walkways and lawns, assorted play areas, art exhibits, and plenty of seating.

For kids: Beyond scampering along the rail lines and jumping on and off the geometric benches, children can enjoy a few other playful features. At 14th St. is an ultra-shallow water feature, perfect for cooling off in the heat. Further north are an open lawn (where many free events for children take place during the summer months) and a sunken play area consisting of the railway’s original beams and girders, now covered in kid-friendly silicone. There are also a day-long Halloween party and paid job opportunities for teenagers aged 14-19.

Access: There are 11 entry points, with elevators at Gansevoort, 14th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th Sts., and a ramp at 34th St.

Public restrooms: Yes, at the Gansevoort and 16th St. access points. There are changing tables in the ladies’ restrooms.

Food & drink: During the warmer months, there are food and drink vendors throughout the park, with most concentrated in its southern end. Year-round, Chelsea Market on 9th Ave. between 15th & 16th Sts. offers dozens of dining options.
