About Governors Island
Come see civil war reenactments, outdoor sculptures, fountains, lay in hammocks or play mini golf or baseball on one of the newly built ball fields at Governors Island, an oasis and urban sanctuary which offers hours of free entertainment . Governors Island is accessible by ferry only — nominal fee for adults, children ride free. During the summer, kids can partake in crafts sponsored by the Children’s Museum of the Arts, get their sugar fix at one of the several soda and/or ice cream vendors or participate in one of the many festivals. Go for a bike ride, hike or just run around and burn off some energy against a beautiful backdrop, Governors Island offers plenty of culture and history for the entire family. Stroller friendly.
