Battery Park NYC Spring Blooms 2022

Hi friends, welcome back! Spring seems to be here in NYC and I am loving it! Two years ago (April 2020) Jon and I walked through Battery Park and discovered so many tulips and beautiful spring blooms, and that post brought me so much joy and hope during the initial lockdowns. I was very excited to recreate the post again this year and I was delighted to find even more blooms.

I started at Zucotti Park to capture all of the colorful tulips. This area is usually filled with people and skate boarders, but luckily I found a quiet time to stop by. We can see this park from our kitchen window and walk through it every weekend on our way to Whole Foods. I especially love walking through with all the colorful flowers.

I went to Brookfield Place next and I was immediately in tulip heaven!! This park is technically called Pumphouse Park, but all I could think about was the song Tip-Toe Through The Tulips. I had this area mostly to myself and it was a dream! I wish I had come with my coffee to sit and enjoy the peaceful tulip sanctuary.

Behind Brookfield Place displays more tulips overlooking the Hudson River and Statue of Liberty in the distance.

I continued making my way downtown, walking fast, faces pass and Iโ€™m seeing more flowers ( I hope the Vanessa Carlton song is playing in your head ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I couldnโ€™t get enough of the bright colors along the water. Jon and I walk along this path frequently and itโ€™s always so peaceful being along the water.

More colors and Lady Liberty.

I eventually made my way to Battery Park and I was surprised how crowded it was for a Monday morning. So many people were making their way onto a Statue of Liberty cruise, maybe they were inspired to visit after reading my Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island posts ๐Ÿ˜‰ ! I’d highly recommend visiting both, yes itโ€™s very touristy, but itโ€™s also very cool and interesting. If anything, the views of the NYC skyline from the water are worth it alone.

In the summertime, this area is filled with picnics and people hanging out with friends. Now they have chairs you can borrow to spread out among the lawn.

I saw these beautiful tulips and the true picture of manโ€™s best friend put a big smile on my face.

Last but not least, the Bowling Green Park covered in pretty red tulips. I also learned that this was the first public park established in New York in 1733. I walk by this spot pretty frequently and had no idea itโ€™s significance.

I hope you enjoyed this spring tour of Battery Park and all of the tulips! I had the best time meandering around my neighborhood and snapping pictures. Time to cross off another item on my Spring Bucket List ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. All the tulips were a nice spring surprise! I am so happy spring is seeming to stay here finally ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Luckily whoever was in charge planted these tulips at the right time. We had some cold days and a lot died. It’s so sad when they die after the cold.

  1. Wow! Breathtaking! Thank you for sharing, BUT it should be noted thatโ€™s a Vanessa Carlton song, not Michelle Branch. Nonetheless, โ€œA Thousand Milesโ€ is definitely in my head now!

    1. Thank you so much for pointing that out, I just updated my post ๐Ÿ™‚ Funny I had a tab open making sure the lyric was right but not the artist. The 90s kid in me can’t believe I did that haha

      1. Believe me, I understand! We all have those moments in our writing! Love that song! Such a jam! I dare say itโ€™s as beautiful as all those tulips!

      2. Haha so true! Such a jam! Glad you enjoyed the song and tulips ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Such a gorgeous park! Luckily it’s on my way to the library so I can walk through it frequently.

  2. Such beautiful brightly coloured tulips Lyssy. They are such uplifting spring flowers and when they are on sale I always have vases of them around my house. It must have been lovely wandering around Battery Park in the spring sunshine.

    1. To say my wandering was a breath of fresh air was an understatement. We are going to a tulip field this weekend where we can pick as many as we went. I’m excited to display the colorful blooms in my apartment ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Nothing beats a good bed of colourful tulips in the spring sunshine. I love low angle shots and often try to shoot up from below the blooms, if the lighting is right. Well captured Lyssy. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I agree, they always put a smile on my face! Low angle shots do look neat with the right lighting, it helped I wasn’t worried about being in anyones way when I shot them. Glad you enjoyed ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I was going to gush on Powerhouse Park but the first photo of the walk along the river takes the prize. Almost a canopy of trees between the flowerbeds there. I can only imagine how much those places facing the water cost. Any idea how long the tulip beds hold their look? Will they be replanted as spring becomes summer or do the blooms last longer than I think they do? As for Vanessa Carleton, shame on me for not recognizing the very first lyrics of that wonderful song.

    1. It is a gorgeous place to walk! I think tulips can last a few days or up to two weeks depending on how hot it is. It hasn’t been too hot here, so they seem to be lasting. I walked by a few days later and they looked even prettier! I don’t think they are replanted, but I can’t remember what it looks like in the summer, I’ll have to report back ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha I had the artist wrong at first, so I can’t blame you!

  5. These images are beautiful, I wish I could see the picture of the dog that was being taken. I bet it was adorable!

    1. So exciting to see all the blooms, I think spring is finally here to stay in NYC!
