Located directly under the Kosciuszko Bridge and called “Under the K Bridge Park,” the new park converts a formerly abandoned site into a vibrant seven-acre open space that invites the public to a little-known waterfront of Newtown Creek.
The space, designed by Toronto- based landscape architecture firm PUBLIC WORK, features expansive multi-purpose sections for recreation, culture, and woodland areas where more than 20,000 trees and native plant species now grow.
Under the soaring Kosciuszko Bridge columns, our “El-space” grows from 40 feet to as much as 100 feet in height. Distinguishing itself with massive industrial “rooms” connected by a continuous beam of light that runs the park’s length, creating what we call a “solar slice.”.
