As part of our continuing work to bring Governors Island back to life, The Trust for Governors Island is designing a new 40-acre park south of Division Road and a 2.2 mile Great Promenade along the waterfront. We will also be restoring the landscapes in the Historic District. The new park will take advantage of the South Island’s spectacular views and be built on land now closed to the public where non-descript barracks and parking lots stand. The design will not alter the character of the beautiful Historic District you see today.
The acclaimed Dutch urban design and landscape architecture firm, West 8 and a team of designers have been chosen to design these new public open spaces. Let us know what you think of the Park and Public Space Master Plan. You can view the entire plan at www.govislandpark.com.
