Surrounding the city’s Cloisters museum, a reconstructed monestary that is home to nearly 5,000 medieval treasures, Fort Tryon Park overlooks the Hudson River and offers stunning skyline views from one of the highest points in Manhattan. Completed in 1935, the 67-plus outdoor space contains two playgrounds, basketball courts, a dog run, and eight miles of paths. The three–acre Heather Garden has more than 200 varieties of perennials and shrubs, including tulips, rhododendrons, roses, hydrangeas, and Franklinia trees, while the Alpine Garden is filled with decorative rocks.
