Liberty Park

A public green space overlooking the World Trade Center campus.

Overview

Liberty Park is a unique elevated park in Lower Manhattan. The green space overlooks the 9/11 Memorial to the north and city streets to the south, offering urban views like no other. In warmer months, its home to film and art events. It's also a great space to meet friends, eat lunch in the sun, and retreat from the bustle of the city. 

ARCHITECTURE

Landscape architect Joseph Brown designed Liberty Park to be an accessible thoroughfare for commuters, a home to historic monuments, and a space for locals and visitors to enjoy.

 

It features a "living wall," a sapling from the Anne Frank Tree, the America's Response Monument, and the Koenig Sphere. The St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church is under construction on Liberty Park's eastern side.

 

The park connects to the pedestrian walkway (damaged on 9/11) over West Street as well as three street-level stairs and a ramp to Greenwich Street. 

 

Before 9/11, the site had been occupied by the original St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, Bankers Trust Building, and the NYPD; like much of the World Trade Center, it was largely destroyed and eventually redeveloped into the park we know today.
