Rockefeller Park

Rockefeller Park contains most of Battery Park City’s wide lawns, as well as a large playground, plantings and gardens, several public art pieces, and a sheltered pavilion. Restrooms and public telephones are located at the Park House where BPC Parks staff are also available to provide assistance and information.

The park is named in honor of Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller, who signed the Battery Park City Authority Act in 1968, establishing Battery Park City for generations of New Yorkers and visitors to come.
