Fans were quick to comment on the video, including some of Robin's co-stars.

Sam Champion, GMA's weatherman, was one of the first to reply, writing: "I wanna go," while ABC star Deborah Roberts simply wrote: "Joy!"

Another fan commented: "You are the coolest," while another remarked: "Haha how cool is that! Looks fun."

The 2.4-acre park is constructed along 13th street in Hudson River Park and features everything from a plaza with seating and food to over 350 species of flowers. There is also a stage and lawn area named The Glade and an amphitheatre called The Amph, that hosts over 600 people.

Robin has had a fun few weeks at work visiting various places. As well as NYC's latest park, she also got to go to Dollywood earlier in the month.

Robin's busy work schedule sees her split her time between New York and Connecticut.

While she enjoys nothing more than being at home with her partner Amber Laign and their pet dog Lukas during the weekends, during the weekdays, she lives in her apartment in Manhattan so she can be in easy reach to the GMA studios.

However, last year during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, the star hosted GMA from Connecticut to avoid travelling into the city.

She joked that her commute had never been easier, as it was a quick walk down the stairs to her basement each morning. Robin later returned to the ABC studios in September, where she has been co-hosting the show again ever since.
