Swindler Cove Park
Swindler Cove Park is an entirely new, 5-acre park we helped create in northern Manhattan on the site of what was once an illegal dumping ground on the Harlem River. Opened to the public in August 2003, Swindler Cove Park represents the full spectrum of NYRP's efforts to reclaim open space for the betterment of under-served communities.
Swindler Cove Park now features restored wetlands, native plantings, a freshwater pond, and gracious pathways. The park is also home to our Riley-Levin Children's Garden, where at-risk youngsters from nearby public schools tend their own beds of vegetables, flowers, and herbs through free in-school and after-school programs.
The park also features our Peter Jay Sharp Boathouse.
