New York City’s Upper West Side is now home to a beautiful new public park – Waterline Square Park. This coveted green space acts as a backyard for the residents and pets of the Waterline Square residential development, and also as a much-needed outdoor space for residents of the surrounding community to relax, exercise and enjoy nature.
Designed by acclaimed landscape architecture firm Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, this beautiful park spans 2.6 acres at the heart of Waterline Square, residential development along the Hudson River waterfront where Midtown meets the Upper West Side. Open to the public, the park unifies the buildings of Waterline Square while connecting the nearby waterfront space to the surrounding community.
Complete with water features, lush plantings, walking paths and an expansive playground, the park serves at once as a backyard and an oasis, creating a verdant view and serene retreat for residents in the area. Since the space opened over the summer, the park has attracted throngs of visitors clamoring for cherished outdoor space. There is a fully-equipped children’s playground and plenty of open space to run around.
Developer GID Development Group prepared a full calendar of socially-distanced events for residents and those nearby, including yoga, musical performances by Grammy-nominated artists and more. The developer is exploring programming for the park this winter to continue engaging the community.
Waterline Square is a collection of three residential buildings on one of the last remaining waterfront development sites on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Offering a variety of residential lifestyle opportunities, Waterline Square is home to condominiums, rental residences, a comprehensive amenities package designed in collaboration with Rockwell Group. Surrounding the park will be a dynamic hospitality program open to the neighborhood, including Harry’s Table by Cipriani, Empellón and Somm Cellars Wine & Spirits.
