Where are we going today?

Kids can’t decide between hockey or volleyball?  Dad wants golf but Mum wants ice-skating? Then Chelsea Piers is one of those magical places that can solve all of your problems.  Situated between Pier 61 and 62 is Field House - 80,000 sq feet of sporting facilities that will keep the entire family entertained for the day and so much variety it will make Ben & Jerry’s seem like they only offer vanilla. 

Within the Field House itself is a 23,000 sq foot gymnastics training centre for the older children and a special toddler gymnastics area for those smaller future Olympians, two basketball courts, four batting cages, dance studios, field hockey, lacrosse, a 25ft climbing wall, artificial playing fields...we’re exhausted just writing about it!

There are Little Athletics for those aged 1 - 5, and sporting classes perfect for those 5 - 17 years. 

If the kids can’t get enough on a weekend Field House even offer a variety of camps that allow caring and expert instructors to really allow them to learn and really shine. 

For the parents, there are adult activities such as rock climbing and batting cages to ensure you can get as involved as the children. 

The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers has programs for both adults and children, including an after school program, family program and Saturday program.   Here all levels - from beginner to elite - can enjoy a fully automated tee-up system within 4 tiers of heated and weather-protected hitting stalls. There are even simulators for those whose dream it is to play at Pebble Beach.  Come on Dad you know that’s you!

To top it off, Pier 61 is home to two ice skating rinks, a 6,000 sq ft sun deck and bowling.  What more could you want?!

    We had 4 hours to kill with my son (3 years old) while visiting NYC and spent 2 and a half of it at the Chelsea Piers. Although the only reason this review is not 5/5 is the size of the room is rather small, it's actually quite thorough in engagement and fun for kids of all ages. We were there with four other parents whose kids were younger and everyone had a great time. The space is very clean, spotless actually, and easy to get to. Highly recommended for locals or visitors.

    This is such a great area to explore for any outdoor activity you can think of. From boating, skating, soccer, golfing, and more, there's something for everyone. Enjoy the view of the river while participating in your favorite activity.

    The decor is outstanding and everything was clean and very well kept.
    It's huge and every building has an activity and great views of the Hudson. I needed roller blades to travel to each pier which does dock magnificent boats and yachts.
    One pier houses golf and there are pros to give lessons. The balls pop up so you don't need to put the ball on the pin. Great lighting, lots of clubs, lockers too.
    Another houses the 300 Bowling which has a giant bar, new clean shoes and terrific bowling lanes. It has big screen TVs over all the allys, you can...Read More

Next I saw the gymnastic building where you can climb the wall, play Joust or swing into a pit.
There was more but after playing and eating-my time ran out.
I'll be back to discover more treasure on the Hudson.
