“east village”(10 reviews)
“parade”(5 reviews)
Park located in the East Village that was the scene of a big uprising in 1991 when a decision was made to evict the park's homeless in order to renovate; today, the park is pretty and quiet, but is still home to many who have no where else to go.

This park isn’t really anything special and doesn’t seem like it would feel safe after dark. Apart from the public toilets (avoid unless you’re desperate) and the dog watching, there’s really nothing to see.

I went to Tompkins Square park on a sunny saturday morning. It was not too busy but there were already some people enjoying the sun. Usually it is not too noisy, so it is a good place to lay down and read a book.

We stayed at an airbnb nearby and went to the park a few times. It was fine during the day, however, at night we did not feel very safe. It seemed to be a dealers hangout by the playground at night. I'd choose the timing...More

Visited solely to give the Mumford song some context. Green spaces are mostly fenced off and there is a little beat up concrete “athletic field” mostly populated by skate boarders. Also a small playground for kids. Enjoyed the visit.

I loved the park and Hare Krsna tree. Hare Krsna movement ib the West almost started from this park.

The park was busy with a few stalls and a hockey game in progress. Lots of trees and generally pleasant but oh those toilets are filthy. People really don’t like to flush and the stalls have no doors but still see heavy sitting use.

The park is not as clean as others I visited in New York. I also do not suggest using the toilets which need repair and a good cleaning.

As it was March it’s probably not the best time to visit. Looks big we walked from Dumbo area it’s a long walk but we like walking. I’m sure there’s more going on in better weather. We just wandered around but not got very long.

A nice place to relax and walk around. Be sure to get there Sunday for the farmers market and special events like the Halloween "Dog Parade" to see pups in costumes.
