CENTRAL PARK'S RESERVOIR LOOP

Central Park Reservoir Loop

Central Park Reservoir Loop

  • Located in the center of the park, from 85th to 96th street.

FORT GREENE PARK

Fort Greene Loop

Fort Greene Loop

  • Located in Brooklyn, offers several different running loops depending on what you want.
  • Also has basketball courts, tennis courts and outdoor workout equipment if you want to shred up a six pack like our founder. 

 

 

NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDENS

New York Botanical Gardens

New York Botanical Gardens

  • A bit of a trek north, located in the Bronx, but worth it if you love woodsy trails and beautiful flowers.

  • Opens early for runners, so between 6 am and 10 am the gardens are private, just you and nature.
  • Scenic routes make you forget you're still in the city.
 

HUDSON RIVER PARK

  • Great views of the Statue of Liberty, the Intrepid, and fall foliage. 

  • The path runs from the tip of Manhattan to 59th street, so hop on and off as you see fit.

  • Several places to stop along the way, including dog parks, batting cages, and tennis courts.
