BATTERY PARK CITY — Play tennis with Denis Leary, go sailing with Brooke Shields and take a leisurely stroll through Hudson River Park with Martha Stewart — if you donate money to support the park.

The Friends of Hudson River Park has teamed up with Charitybuzz to launch a fundraiser that will allow New Yorkers to spend an afternoon with some of the park’s most devoted celebrities.

“We wanted to offer something that you could only get in New York and only experience in Hudson River Park,” Friends of Hudson River Park Executive Director Gregory Boroff said in a press release.

“Two of our most important resources are the singular programming and location of the park and our celebrity friends. Bringing [that] together seemed like a natural fit!”

The high bid for tennis with Denis Leary was $1,500 on Tuesday afternoon, while a walk in the park with Martha Stewart was at $1,750. The Brooke Shields sailing excursion had a high bid of $2,000. The auction ends May 22.

Other activities include paddleboarding with actor Darren Criss, hitting the driving range with chef David Chang and going to trapeze school with TV host Nate Berkus.

The Criss auction had a high bid of $1,500 as of Tuesday, while the Chang and Berkus auctions had yet to receive bids.

To participate, log onto www.charitybuzz.com/hprk. Proceeds will support Hudson River Park.
