"Tompkins Square Park (Ave A between 7th and 10th Sts; 212-274-1111, nyc.gov/parks), but you have to be kind of...careful there. The guys are very friendly."---Euphrosini Saliaris, 26, social media correspondent, East Village

Time Out says

What was once a hotbed of crime and drugs has transformed in the past decade into the crown jewel of the East Village. The 10.5-acre green space underwent a $2.1 million renovation in the ’90s, and the result is a cleaner, greener park—one that's especially dog-friendly, with fenced-off areas for pooches big and small, and three bone-shaped doggy swimming pools. The park also contains several monuments, including an elm tree that serves as a memorial to Hare Krishnas.

I used to live right by this park and I loved coming here to lay out in the grass on a nice day. They've recently redone the grass and it will be super nice this spring/summer. The dog park also always has cute dogs and there's often live musicians playing.

Never really spent a lot of time in this park, but it always seems to be busy and full. There's a cute little dog park at one end that I've taken my dog to a few times. There's always a basketball or hockey game going on as well. They also have an adorable farmers market on one end during the weekend.
