Experience Riverside, Courtside

Manhattan-Upper West Side

Whether you're looking for some fun activities for your kids or you're just looking to get out and enjoy the fresh air and burn off some steam you can't go wrong with a morning or afternoon in Riverside Park. Take in a tennis lesson and hit the Hudson path. When I teach tennis classes I also try to save some time to enjoy the park. Snap captive photos, and get a walk or a workout in.

Riverside Park is a beautiful place to explore. Before or after I'm teaching tennis lessons I always enjoying strolling through the park. I particually enjoy the path that runs along the Hudson River. It's a great spot to get some exercise and release some stress, rollerblading is a great option and a great workout.
