Foley Square Rest Stop
The Foley Square Rest Stop is the furthest rest stop south and is located around Foley Square and Thomas Paine Park. The main attraction at “Come Ride the Slide” is the Beachside Slide at Vita Coco Beach. The water slide is 270 feet tall and online preregistration is required to participate on the slide itself.
If exhilarating water sports don’t exactly sound like a fun time to you, the remainder of Vita Coco Beach will be more suitable. Lounge chairs, misting stations, and refreshments will be available for anyone passing through the rest stop.
The Wheelchair Sports Federation will also be present at the Foley Square Rest Stop, inviting the public to attend exhibitions of practicing adaptive basketball teams, and are invited to participate in games and training sessions as well. All members of the public are invited to participate, including the able bodied, with loaner wheelchairs available at the location.
Summer Streets has become a yearly tradition for New York City, growing each year and becoming more and more exciting. With each year’s new activities comes new opportunities for excitement and fun.
