Hunts Point Riverside Park is a riverside park located in the Hunts Point neighborhood in the South Bronx section of New York City. It is the first new riverside park to be built in the area in over sixty years, and is the first of a planned series of parks to be linked by a bike route to create the South Bronx Greenway.
Before the planned park project, the site was an abandoned lot that was once part of a defunct Robert Moses era bridge project. The POINT Community Development Corporation's Majora Carter spearheaded the development of this park.
