You’re never too young or old to play on Governors Island! The Hammock Grove Play Area features play structures for all ages. Grab a ball and club to play mini golf at FIGMENT’s course on the Parade Ground, cool off in the Play Fountains and Liggett Terrace, climb and slide at the Hills, or climb in the Tree House.


The Hills

Slide Hill is an oasis of play for all ages! Ride down four slides of varying lengths, including the longest slide in NYC at 57 feet. In addition, Slide Hill includes a wide family slide and two ADA accessible slides.

Slides are built into a Timber Climb for more adventurous climbers. An ADA accessible path up the back side of the slide area provides universal access.
