Events Park to Park Swim

Park to Park Swim

The Park to Park Swim is always among our most popular events. With water temperatures in the mid-60s, organized during slack tide, and an afternoon start time, this one-Mile swim on the Hudson provides great views of both Manhattan and the Palisades as well as an excellent opportunity, albeit at a slower speed, to preview the final portion of the Little Red Lighthouse Swim course.

After the event, all racers, volunteers, and their friends are invited to join the NYC Swim staff at Coogan's Restaurant (Broadway at 169th Street) for an informal pay-as-you-go party.

There can be a substantial amount of chop in the water from wind & tide action. The waterways are salt-water and there is shipping traffic. There may be random jetsam & flotsam in the waterways. For additional information on swimming and water quality in the Hudson River, please see our FAQ page.
