Who says you have to leave NYC to find tranquility and nature? Not only are there incredible paved paths to hike through (you can even bring a baby stroller!). But the sprawling lawns can be the home to a picnic, your kid's b-day party or simply a quiet place for some "me time."

This is where you will find the last natural forest in Manhattan. If you arrive before 4:30 you can take a canoe out for free.

Explore the primordial forest of northern Manhattan. – Overview
The oak, maple and hickory trees in this 196-acre park at the northern tip of Manhattan are the only remaining proof that this city was once covered by a forest. The park, whose environs once housed the Weekquaeskeek Indian tribe, is the only surviving patch of natural plant life in Manhattan; it has one of the borough's highest elevations as well.

Features and Attractions

No roller-blading here--just families hiking the calf-building hills and bird-watching trails; there are also views of the Cloisters, Harlem River and the Henry Hudson Bridge and plain old peace and quiet. Local fishermen dot the shoreline, along with a big letter "C" marking Columbia University's playing fields. An overall untamed, rambling beauty lends a feeling of pioneer exploration. Look for pockets of pine forest in the southern parts and small rock caves borne of glacial movements way back when.
