Elysian Park One of Hoboken’s Many Waterfront Parks & Playgrounds

One of the nicest features of living in Hoboken is being able to enjoy our abundant neighborhood parks, many of them located on or near the waterfront.

Elysian Park, at the corner of Frank Sinatra Dr and Hudson St (at 11th) is one of our oldest.

On June 19, 1846, Hoboken’s Elysian Fields played host to the first officially recorded, organized baseball game. Though it is believed that the Maxwell House Coffee Plant (now Maxwell Place Condominiums) was later built on the spot where the first game was played, the smaller Elysian Park still remains.

Elysian Park has two playgrounds that are fenced in and have spongy flooring, slides, swings and benches.  There’s also a fenced in dog run that will keep Fido happy, a basketball court and rest rooms. The Northern end of prestigious Castle Point Terrace ends at the park.

There’s a nice grassy area for lounging and excellent Hudson River and Manhattan views from the east side of the park.

Facing the park are numerous pre-war condo buildings including this one at 1000 Hudson St.

Swing on by and see this nice uptown Hoboken park.  While you’re at it, check out the lovely brownstones and condominium options in the area.
