Until the mid-20th century, Hoboken’s waterfront was largely industrial and inaccessible to the public. Today, docks and factories have been replaced by parks and promenades, with new apartments, condominiums, offices, restaurants, and shops close by. Pier C Park is part of a new generation of publicly accessible recreational areas along the waterfront.
Located on the Hoboken waterfront, just west of Manhattan, Pier C Park is accessed via a pier and curving walkway with spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. The island-like park is buzzing with activity: amenities include play landscapes and a water play area for children, lawn areas for sunbathing and games, a promenade with waterfront seating, a fishing pier, as well as landscaped areas with coastal plants and a roosting structure for nesting osprey.
Pier C Park is part of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway—a waterfront corridor spanning nine municipalities, which gives pedestrians and cyclists access to seven miles of shoreline. The walkway will eventually exceed 40 miles in length and will connect the Bayonne Bridge in Bayonne with the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee.
