This scenic four-mile waterfront park extends from 59th to 155th Streets along the Hudson River in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, making it the perfect spot for long strolls, bike rides or roller blades. Facilities include sport courts, a turf field, dog runs, a skate park, bike paths on the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, a public marina for kayaking at 79th Street, and no less than 15 playgrounds, including our personal favorite, Hippo Playground. Riverside Park is also home to the summerlong festival run by the NYC Parks Department, Summer on the Hudson, which includes kids' concerts, outdoor movie screenings, public art, fitness workshops and tons of performances.

This review of Riverside Park is so funny.  The writer has obviously never been there or done the stroll.  The writer has read other reviews or just looked at the web sites of the Riverside Park Conservancy's and the NYC Parks Dept.
