The park is parallel to the High Line Canal and the High Line Canal Trail. This trail has hundreds of trees and almost constant tree coverage. Footbridge Park is a better spot to relax if you want to be next to the creek (there’s a bridge, too)!

Logan Mastrianna's review reads, "It's beautiful and has an amazing view. Not every park needs to have a playground, water fountains, etc. I really enjoy this park and when I first discovered it, I was surprised to suddenly see so much space in a residential area."
