Port Authority of NY and NJ unveils Liberty Park

Located 25ft above Liberty Street and offering a panoramic view of the National September 11 Memorial is Liberty Park, the latest element of the WTC site to be unveiled by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Designed by landscape architect Joseph E. Brown, the 63,000 sq ft park is both a forecourt to the new Calatrava-designed St. Nicolas Church, to which it is attached, and a vital east-west pedestrian crossing linking Battery Park City and the Financial District.

Plans call for a 20ft-high 300ft-long vertical garden wall made of various types of plantings including periwinkle, Japanese spurge and Baltic Ivy and more than 40 trees and shrubs. The park will also have an amphitheater and benches for lounging and relaxing and will be connected to the street via two large staircases. The $50m park is expected to open sometime in 2015.
