From the George Washington Bridge to West 145th Street there is an existing waterfront greenway. At West 179th Street, just south of the George Washington Bridge, the greenway runs along the water across the highway in Fort Washington Park. The greenway is 12 feet wide and has lighting, benches and tables and offers spectacular views of the Hudson River. In this area there is limited upland access from the greenway; the park is only accessible from West 181st, 158th and 155th streets.
At West 155th Street Fort Washington Park becomes Riverside Park. From West 155th Street to West 146th Street the greenway continues through Riverside Park as a 12-foot wide multi-use path with limited access due to the Henry Hudson Parkway.
