During this season of giving, when you become a Friends with Benefits member, you have the opportunity to help us fight PIER Pressure.

What’s PIER pressure? It’s that feeling we get when we open so many new and amazing Park spaces for the public to enjoy which need to be maintained. It’s also the motivation to sustain our additional gardens, greenscapes and 30 million oysters for Park people like you.

When you become a member, you have the opportunity to tell us which pier or green space in the Park inspires you the most.

Want to get involved?

Hudson River Park Friends’ membership program is called Friends with Benefits for a reason: joining unlocks VIP opportunities, special invitations, discounts at numerous local businesses that take part in our Community Partner Program, and more ways to enjoy your Park while YOU help it thrive.

Hudson River Park is not part of NYC Parks — programming, maintenance and operations of our west side backyard rely on private support — including from Park lovers like you.

By becoming a Member, you help Hudson River Park Friends care for the Park’s four miles of lush green space, protected estuarine waters, beautifully landscaped piers, athletic fields, playgrounds, dog runs and bike paths.

Sign up today — let’s be Friends.
