Field Report: Foundations for Fountains

Fountain Foundations

Fountain Foundations

Construction on the 30 new acres of glorious park and public spaces on Governors Island continues apace! We have recently installed the foundations for three new fountains. The fountains are situated in the Liggett Terrace area of the new park at the center of Governors Island. The best part: the fountains will include water features designed for playing and sized for visitors big and small.

When completed, Liggett Terrace will be a sunny, six-acre plaza featuring moveable seating, public art, and food. Park designers West 8 drew inspiration from historical landscape gardens and hedges. Liggett Terrace will include a children’s hedge maze in addition to the fountains.
