Wagner Park

A wonderful mix of open lawns and intensively planted gardens, threaded through with paths and walkways, Wagner Park is a place to explore. The Park Pavilions contain a restaurant, and its public roof deck affords breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor. Public telephone and restrooms are available at this location.

The park is named in honor of Robert F. Wagner, Jr., son of three-term New York City Mayor Robert F. Wagner (1954-1965), and distinguished civil servant who helped negotiate Battery Park City’s 1979 Master Plan.
