Inwood Hill Park is a public park in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City, operated by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. On a high schist ridge that rises 200 feet (61 m) above the Hudson River from Dyckman Street to the northern tip of the island, Inwood Hill Park's densely folded, glacially scoured topography contains the largest remaining old-growth forest on Manhattan Island. Unlike other Manhattan parks, Inwood Hill Park is largely natural and consists of mostly wooded, non-landscaped hills.

  • Enjoyed a lovely day. Hiked the trails, though they could’ve been marked more clearly. Great views, fields, and playground.  more »
  • It's a cool, large park... Base ball field, large play grounds for the kids... Handball/tennis courts. Woods for hiking... Nice pretty little lake, lots of grassy open areas... Not as big as a central /Van Courtland park... But a pretty large nice neighborhood park with plenty to do if your locally in the area looking to kill time or entertain the kids.
  • Pretty Big Park! Lot's to explore! They have a playground with sprinklers and big sand box. My kids loved it! Didn't want to leave. Wish we had more time to explore. Trails are really beautiful!
